Police: ‘Too many loose ends’ causing delay in completing investigation into fatal shooting of Cumberland boy
CUMBERLAND, Ind. — Police say there’s been a delay in completing their investigation after a young boy was shot and killed on Friday inside the Berkshire Square Apartments.
Police had said they hoped to have an update on Tuesday, but were unable to share more information since there are still too many loose ends in the investigation.
Investigators say Anthony Harmon Jr., 10, was shot in the head on Friday inside the Berkshire Square Apartments in the 500 block of Wickerwood Drive. He was found in the kitchen when police got there and pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers say they believe the boy lived at that apartment, but only young kids and teens were there at the time of the shooting. No adults were there at the time.
On Friday, police were trying to figure out who owned the gun and who pulled the trigger. Police say they took the kids who were inside to an offsite location as they attempted to contact parents and do interviews, which made their investigation more difficult.
Police say the investigation is taking longer than expected because of all the kids involved. Officers say they plan to meet with the Marion County Prosecutor this week.
