By The Associated Press
HOBART — A suspect is being sought in a shooting that wounded a man and his 9-year-old son outside a northwestern Indiana store that authorities say stemmed from an ongoing dispute between two gang factions.
Hobart police announced Tuesday that 26-year-old Alex Cordell Hughes of Gary is charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and criminal gang activity in the shooting Sunday evening in a parking lot outside a Walmart in Hobart. The boy is in critical condition and his 25-year-old father is in stable condition.
Lt. James Gonzales described Hughes as “armed and dangerous.”
Police have said the father, who also is from Gary, was wounded in a shooting about six weeks ago in Gary.
After Sunday’s shooting, people took shelter in the store as officers responded.
