CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and the Carroll County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating a late-night shooting in northeastern Carroll County Thursday night.

According to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, officials received a 911 report of a 17-year-old girl who had been shot and was lying motionless in the roadway near the Burrows Presbyterian Church. Burrows is located eleven miles northeast of Delphi, off of the Hoosier Heartland. Police said when they arrived on the scene, they found a female juvenile, alert and conscious, with what appeared to be a single gunshot wound to the upper torso. Police said the injury appeared to not look life-threatening. 

Before being taken to a hospital, police were able to briefly talk with the victim and gain a suspect vehicle description described as a gray Mitsubishi ERS passenger car.

At 11:48 p.m., Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Deputies stopped a vehicle having a similar description on the Hoosier Heartland Highway, in northeastern Tippecanoe County, and detained the people in the vehicle.

Documents show Emmett Davis, 22, Lafayette and Mike-Anthony Stephens, 20, also of Lafayette, were taken into custody and transported to the Carroll County Jail in Delphi. Davis was preliminarily arrested for Attempted Murder (Level 1 felony); Aggravated Battery (Level 3 felony); and Robbery (Level 3 felony). Stephens was initially arrested for Assisting a Criminal (Level 5 felony). Davis is being held on a $100,000 bond and Stephens on a $10,000 bond.

Carroll County investigators believing the incident may have been a botched robbery attempt that may have involved drugs.
