Share this post

Gary Police are investigating the fourth shooting death in the city in less than a week. Corporal Gabrielle King says 17-year-old Joshua Passmore of Gary was a backseat passenger in a vehicle with some friends who'd gone to a gas station in the 15-hundred block of Burr Street around 10-o'clock Wednesday night. "As the driver was putting gas in the car, they heard shots being fired in their direction from an unknown location," said Gary Police Corporal Gabrielle King. Corporal King says the driver got back in his car, and as they were driving away,  realized that Passmore was slumped over, then called 911 advising authorities they were on their way to the emergency room with a gunshot victim. The Lake County Coroners office says Passmore was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. Authorities say three people were shot and killed in Gary over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, in the five-thousand block of Pennsylvania Street, near 5th and Delaware, and in the 51-hundred block of Georgia Street.
