SYRACUSE Ind. (WANE) – Law enforcement in Kosciusko County are searching for a man they think was involved in a double shooting in Syracuse early Thursday morning that left one person dead.
Police are trying to find 22-year-old Brandon T. Woody who is considered armed and dangerous, reported WISH-TV sister station WANE News.
According to Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sergeant Chad Hill, Syracuse police responded to a shooting at 205 East Main Street around 12:30 a.m.
A 19-year-old man was killed and a 23-year-old woman was critically injured after being shot in the head. Police told WSBT that the injured woman, Tara Lynn Thornburg, was in a relationship with the man who was killed. She was the one who called police, who arrived just after midnight.
Officials are not releasing the name of the deceased until family members have been notified. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed on Thursday.
