Officers received a tip about a possible active shooter plot by two high school students. The students were located and interviewed. They were both transported to a Youth Detention Facility and charged with terroristic threats.
1100 E. Harvard Ave.
Officers responded to a shots fired call. Officers made contact with the home caretakers. The female half reported that this was her elderly mother’s currently vacant home that she takes care of with her husband. They knew someone had been breaking into the home so they waited for the burglars to show up tonight. Once the male and female burglars showed up they confronted them with handguns and demanded that they wait for the police. The male suspect did not comply, was shot in the abdomen, and fled the home. The male caretaker ran after him but the suspect fled in a vehicle. The male caretaker then fired shots at the fleeing vehicle. The suspect went to at a local hospital, is in stable condition, and is currently under guard by police. The female suspect Paulette Gray (46), was booked into jail for burglary. The caretaker, Glen Decker (51), was booked into jail on aggravated assault charges.
