No names released in Brazil death investigation

Victim dies en route to hospital

BRAZIL — It could be Friday before a dead man’s identity is released in a Brazil homicide investigation.

Brazil Police Chief Clint McQueen said Wednesday that while the investigation continues into a shooting Tuesday morning at the Vine Street Apartments, the identity of the people involved may be withheld for two more days.

An Indiana State Police crime scene unit is processing evidence from the scene, McQueen confirmed.

The shooting occurred sometime around 6 a.m. Tuesday when a domestic dispute was reported to police.

The man who was shot apparently went to a home on South Vine Street in a neighborhood north of Forest Park, where an alleged battery ensued. The shooting victim, who was shot in the chest, died en route to a hospital.

On Tuesday afternoon, Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham told the Tribune-Star that investigators are looking into the possibility of self-defense in the case. The name of the alleged shooter was not being released. That person was questioned by police, and had not been charged with a crime as of noon Wednesday.

The man who died was shot in the upper chest area. He was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital in Brazil, and died en route to an Indianapolis hospital. An autopsy was conducted Tuesday, but the results were not available Wednesday, McQueen said.

Clay County Coroner Joel Reinoehl told the Tribune-Star that no information about the autopsy was being released pending the police investigation.
