CORYDON, Ind. (AP) — Two persons of interest in a drive-by shooting in southern Indiana have been apprehended in South Dakota, Indiana State Police said Monday.
Timothy Sargent, 41, and Savanna Emich, 20, both of Ohio, were taken into custody by South Dakota authorities after allegedly being involved in a pursuit near Sioux Falls, police said. Both were lodged in the Minnehaha County Jail on Monday morning.
They were wanted in connection with a shooting Wednesday evening that wounded two people who had just left O’Bannon Woods State Park in Harrison County.
Neither Sargent nor Emich has been formally charged with any crime in Indiana, but Sargent is wanted for attempted murder in Ohio and is also a person of interest in slayings in Ohio and West Virginia, Indiana State Police said.
In the Harrison County shooting, investigators believe a family of three had just left the state park after a hike when a car pulled up behind their SUV with its high-beams on, prompting the man to pull over to let the car pass.
Instead, it pulled alongside and someone inside the car fired multiple rounds into the SUV, whose driver then crashed the vehicle.
After the shooting, officers found the car abandoned in a cornfield about 15 miles away, near the Crawford County town of Carefree, where the driver had stolen a pickup truck parked at a nearby residence.
