MUNCIE, Ind. (July 9, 2015) – A Muncie teenager was arrested and preliminarily charged with murder in last week’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Christian Orebaugh.
According to the Muncie Star Press, investigators served a search warrant in the 1900 block of East Cedar Street shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday.
The suspect is 16-year-old and will not be identified until formal charges have been filed.
At that point, the case would likely be automatically waived into adult jurisdiction, and the teen will be transferred from the Delaware County Juvenile Detention Center to the Delaware County jail.
Orebaugh was fatally shot just before 11 p.m. Thursday, July 2 at his house in the 200 block of West 23rd Street.
