NORTH VERNON, Ind. (WDRB) -- Three people have been arrested in the shooting death of a man in Jennings Count, Ind.

Deputies responded to Squire Lakes Boulevard in North Vernon on Monday night to find Donovan Booker, 23, who had been shot in the chest. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

"I didn't think nothing of it," said Kenneth Wilcox, who lives nearby. "I just figured someone was out target-practicing and blew it off. Then I find out what happened and, yeah, it’s very surprising. It’s very close to home, too."

Jennings County officials contacted LMPD for help. Officers searched a home in Louisville on Tuesday and arrested the three suspects, including the alleged shooter, Stephan Moore. He is charged with murder and attempted murder.

Those who live in the area said they are shocked such a violent crime would happen in North Vernon.

Police also want to talk to a fourth person and are asking anyone with information to call the Jennings County Sheriff's Office (812)-346-5111.
