HOBART | Police on Saturday identified two men being investigated in connection with a drive-by shooting in Lansing early Friday and subsequent car chase that ended in Hobart.
Eduardo Luis Jaramello, 23, of Hammond, was charged with Class D felony resisting law enforcement, Hobart police said. Jaramello's brother, Jose Miguel, 31, of Chicago, was charged with misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.
Jaramello and Miguel were charged in connection with the chase, Hobart police Sgt. Jeremy Ogden said. Lansing police are still investigating and have not submitted any charges linked to the shooting, Ogden said.
A total of three men were taken into custody in Hobart after the chase, police said.
"The third suspect was not chargeable," Ogden said. "And anything connected with the Lansing shooting is still alleged while the investigation continues."
Lansing police responded to the 2500 block of Ridge Road about 2:15 a.m. Friday after reports of gunshots in the area, Detective Lt. Steven Roberts said. No one was injured in the shooting, he said.
Roberts said information indicated a dark-colored sport utility vehicle was involved and left the scene. Officers located the vehicle heading west on Ridge Road and attempted to stop it, Roberts said in a statement.
The pursuit continued into Indiana. In Hobart, police used tire-puncturing stop sticks to slow the SUV at 37th Avenue and Louisiana Street, Ogden said.
The sticks successfully punctured the vehicle's tires, but it continued traveling east on 37th Avenue.
The vehicle later headed south on Montgomery Street and eventually stopped at 39th Avenue, Ogden said.
Three suspects fled the SUV, but they were later taken into custody, Ogden said.
No one was injured and there were no crashes during the pursuit, police said.
