Indiana Police Issue Amber Alert for Four Missing Children
A gunman shot a man and held several people hostage for about nine hours Saturday before forcing a woman and her four children into a car and fleeing, police said.
Elkhart police who issued an Amber Alert said the children and their mother were believed to be in extreme danger. The oldest child has severe asthma and needs to use a ventilator every few hours but that device was not taken, police said in a statement released Saturday night.
Police were looking for Jerry D. White 30, who was believed to have abducted 31-year-old Kimberly N. Walker and the children after the shooting in the northern Indiana city about 15 miles west of South Bend that left a man in critical condition.
