Police in Gary say a 41-year-old newspaper salesman was fatally shot about 5:30 this morning in the area of 15th and Clark Road, and the motive is not known. Public Information Officer Corporal Gabrielle King says Kovin Bell was preparing his newspapers for distribution when a male subject walked up to him and fired a gun then fled on foot.  Anyone with information is asked to call Gary Police Corporal Jeff Horniak at 219-881-7300, ext 3002.  The man's death marks the 33rd apparent homicide in the city this year.
Gary police are also investigating a shooting that killed a 23-year-old Gary man late Saturday night. Reports say the victim identified as Andre Pullen was a passenger in a car when he was fatally struck by a bullet from another vehicle in the 15-hundred block of Chase Street.
