3 Indiana officers won’t face charges in gunshots incident

February 24, 2019

ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — Three northern Indiana police officers won’t face criminal charges in an incident in which gunshots were heard as a truck carrying the three off-duty officers traveled along a road.

Goshen officer Brody Brown was charged in December with operating while intoxicated after another officer who was nearby heard the sound of gunshots.

Brown, Goshen officer Kyle Kalb, and Elkhart officer Leonard Dolshenko were all in the vehicle and off-duty at the time of the Dec. 14 incident.

The officers told police they couldn’t recall who shot the gun due to their level of intoxication.

Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker says she couldn’t file charges related to the gunshots due to an “insufficient police response,” including a police failure to secure the truck’s officer-passengers and the vehicle to further the investigation.
