By The Associated Press
TERRE HAUTE — Police arrested a third man Thursday in a September shooting at an off-campus party that killed an 18-year-old Indiana State University student and wounded two other people.
Darius Jovan Jenkins, 26, of Terre Haute, was booked into the Vigo County Jail on a warrant for criminal recklessness, the Tribune-Star reported. He was being held without bond.
Valentina Delva, of Indianapolis, was shot as she rode in a car leaving the Terre Haute party around 2 a.m. on Sept. 18. Two men were wounded.
Jenkins was an Indiana State student at the time of the shooting but has since graduated. Two other students also have also been charged with criminal recklessness in the shooting. The criminal cases of Wesley Meadows of Gary and David Farrell of Terre Haute remain pending.
Police have been awaiting the results of ballistic testing to see if Delva’s death can be linked to a particular person.
It's not clear if Jenkins has an attorney who could comment on the charges. The case did not yet appear in online court records Thursday.
Terre Haute is about 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of Indianapolis, near the Illinois border.
