Forecasters say northwest Indiana will get the most snow when the worst of the winter storm hits later night, bringing possibly six inches or more before it ends. The Indianapolis area can expect accumulations of three to six inches. Cities and towns along and just north of I-70 are in for around three inches of snow. Slightly lower amounts are expected south of a line from Bloomington to Columbus. Meteorologists with WISH TV are predicting blowing snow will cause low visibility and make travel difficult tomorrow and Saturday.
Authorities investing the deadly shooting at the Greenwood Park Mall were not able to determine a clear motive. At a joint press conference yesterday, members of the FBI and Greenwood Police said Jonathan Sapirman’s juvenile history didn’t raise any red flags, but as an adult, he developed an obsession with Nazi Germany and said if he ever killed himself, he would take others with him. On July 17th, Sapirman went to the mall and shot five people near the food court before being shot and killed by an armed bystander. Three of the victims died from their injuries.
