A fatal shooting Tuesday evening in Northwest Indiana has left one woman dead and her husband being held for questioning.
The incident occurred in Long Beach, Indiana, an affluent lakeshore community which runs along and around Lake Michigan. The area is home to a combination of year-round owners and seasonal residents in the summer months from nearby Chicago.
The incident occurred 7pm last evening in the 2900 block of Lothair Way, and few details have been released about the situation as of today. Through real estate records, Victims News Online has been able to confirm the name of the current homeowners, but at least one real estate source in the area has indicated the home may have been in the process of a sale.
The investigation is being conducted by the Long Beach Police Department, with assistance from neighboring Michigan City Police Department’s Detective Bureau.
LaPorte County Prosecuting Attorney Robert “Z” Szilagyi told Victims News Online that the MCPD’s assistance is routine with smaller departments such as Long Beach, and he hopes more information will be released about the situation tomorrow.
We will update this story as more details become available.
