One man is behind bars and another remains at large after they allegedly “chased” four boys in a South Bend, Indiana, alley and started shooting, killing a 12-year-old and wounding a 14-year-old.

St. Joseph County Prosecutor Ken Cotter said: a press conference on Monday The incident occurred around 9pm on October 27 when three 12-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy were walking through an alley. The boys separated and a short time later two of them got into a “brief confrontation” with two men sitting in a car. The boys walked away.

“Two people then turned their car around and gave chase,” Cotter said. “Both individuals got out and fired their firearms at these four boys. Even though they had broken up, they were reasonably close.”

South Bend Police received a ShotSpotter notification of shots fired in the area and responded. Officers found two of the boys shot. One, later identified as 12-year-old Josiah Small, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other, 14, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and survived.

Investigators located video of the incident that showed that after interacting with the boys, the suspects made a U-turn and sped toward the boys. They got out of the car and one chased Josiah and the boy he was with, and the other suspect chased the other two boys who were nearby, according to a probable cause arrest affidavit obtained by Law&Crime . The video showed muzzle flashes from the weapons.
