On Friday at 10:49 a.m., sheriff’s deputies in Johnson County were alerted that a silver Chevrolet HHR driven by Robbie Perez, 35, of Columbus, a suspect in a gunshot that occurred in Hope and included his brother, who is 36 years old, and his nephew, who is 3 years old, was seen heading westbound on East King Street near I-65. The shooting occurred in Hope.
According to Sergeant Dane Duke, a spokesman for the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, the Franklin Police Department was successful in locating the car and made an attempt to bring it to a stop. After a brief foot pursuit, Robbie Perez was eventually apprehended while being pursued by police in a car. At the conclusion of the chase, it was discovered that Robbie Perez had shot himself in the chin, causing him to suffer from a self-inflicted gun wound. He was taken by ambulance to Eskenazi Hospital in order to be evaluated and treated there.
Crime scene investigators analyzed the vehicle, and throughout the course of their investigation, they discovered a handgun concealed inside the vehicle. At this point, the investigation has discovered that the family quarrel that culminated in the shooting was centered around a long-term feud between Robbie Perez and George Perez Jr., who was the victim; the two are brothers. Robbie and George are 36 years old. According to Duke, George Perez Jr. has been discharged from the hospital as of recently.
According to Duke, the victim, who is the 3-year-old son of George Perez Jr., is still in the hospital and is in critical condition. Although it was stated in an earlier story that the youngster was just 2 years old, he is actually 3 years old. According to Duke, Robbie Perez is currently in police custody after being charged with two counts of aggravated violence with a deadly weapon. This is an initial stage of the inquiry. Until they are found guilty in a court of law, all individuals are presumed to be innocent.
