June 1, 2018-Four individuals were charged just moments ago in connection with a shooting that took place at Growler’s on Highway in the early morning hours of May 19, 2018. Two police officers were transported to Methodist Hospital Northlake and East Chicago Officer David Aguilera was later transferred to Christ Advocate Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Both officers have recovered and are home at this time.
While a copy of the charging informations are not available at this time, 3 patrons and a bar employee are expected to be charged according to police sources. A source confirmed moments ago that a Lake County Deputy Prosecutor was filing the charges in the clerk’s office. Prosecutor Bernard Carter has previously hinted that the officers may be charged in the incident but a review by Northwest Indiana Major Crimes had not been completed at that time.
