Michigan City Police were investigating a 2nd fatal shooting in less than a week.

The latest victim was 39-year old Darnell Crawford found dead on a sidewalk before 6 a.m. Sunday at Canterbury House Apartments near Pahs Rd. on the city's south side, police said.

Police said Crawford was shot in the 200 block of Herring Gull Lane at the far southern end of the grounds.

No suspect was in custody but the investigation was still in the early stages, police said.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Michigan City Police detective Arwen LaMotte at (219) 874-3221 ext. 1081.

An arrest was made for the July 25 fatal shooting of Joseph Pryor, 32, of Hammond.

He was shot in the head at 142 N. Woodland Ave. on the city's east side.

Jae'Vianne Aldridge, 18, is charged with murder.

According to court documents, the investigation shows the killing appears to be an act of revenge.

Earlier that evening, a female was repeatedly hit and stomped on in the 200 block of S. Karwick Road.

A witness told police Aldridge's sister was among the attackers.

Aldridge allegedly invited the witness over to fight then during a large altercation shot Pryor, the uncle of the witness, according to court documents.

When officers went to Aldridge's home the next day, police said her girlfriend was trying to flush bullets down a toilet.
