HUNTINGBURG — A Huntingburg man was taken into custody early Sunday and jailed for the weekend shooting death of a Louisville teen.
Kyle J. Chambers, 22, of 702 Shelby St., was taken into custody at his home at 4:50 a.m. by Huntingburg Police Department officers, members of the Dubois County Emergency Response Team and the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Before moving in, Huntingburg police, who had received a tip that Chambers had been in an altercation in Louisville, called the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department to confirm they were in fact dealing with the situation as it had been described to them.
The county emergency response team is trained for raid entries and dealing with barricaded subjects but Chambers was taken into custody without incident. Authorities said he was questioned by Louisville police and then booked into the Dubois County Security Center on a Jefferson County, Ky., warrant charging him with murder.
Authorities allege that, after midnight Saturday, Chambers caused the shooting death of 17-year-old Darius Miller Jr. of Louisville in the parking lot of a closed Walgreen’s drug store on the city’s west end, at 35th and Broadway streets.
Police in Louisville said a wounded Miller was taken to University of Louisville Hospital by a private vehicle. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office reported that Miller was pronounced dead of a single gunshot wound at 5:10 a.m.
A Louisville police detective declined to release further information about the shooting.
Chambers is awaiting extradition to Jefferson County, Ky.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Kars wrecker assisted during Sunday’s police action.
