Teylor Shi Ann Anderson, 20, of South Bend, was transported to Porter County Regional Hospital, then transferred to South Bend Memorial Hospital, police said in a release. Probationary Trooper Luis Alvarez had called a tow truck around 2 a.m. on Sept. 29 for a green Toyota Camry pulled off near the Indiana 49 exit for Chesterton/Valparaiso in Porter County. As the tow truck was trying to hook up the car, they heard a single gunshot inside the car. Two people got out yelling someone had been shot, a release said. A 9mm Glock 19 handgun went off when Anderson tried to put it in her handbag, police said. It belonged to someone else in the car. Alvarez gave first aid, then applied tourniquets to both of Anderson’s legs. Her left leg was bleeding severely and right leg was also bleeding, according to a release. A 1-year-old child next to her was unhurt, police said. Porter County EMS and Cloverleaf Towing assisted. RESOURCE LINK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
