[Excerpts] LaPorte County is abuzz with the news that the deputy prosecutor was shot earlier this week. There had been very little information released about the Monday night shooting, but today WNDU spoke with Jennifer Evans' husband Stephan about the incident, to try and clear things up. He says it was an accidental shooting. The details of the story have been more or less held from the media so far. The county prosecutor's office has really only confirmed there was a shooting at Jennifer Evans' home Monday night, and that her injuries were not life threatening. Evans' husband didn't want to go into too much detail or go on-camera, because the investigation is ongoing, but he said that, "She didn't know it was loaded… when she was handling it." He said he was home at the time, but he wouldn't say who actually fired the gun...

They said the prosecutor's office will be releasing all the information and WNDU couldn't get in contact with County Prosecutor Rob Beckman despite numerous calls to staff, messages, and visits to his office Wednesday.

We have not reported that; Stephan would not confirm who shot the gun... [Full article here]
