Police investigating ‘potential homicide’ near off-campus rowing team boathouse

| Saturday, June 23, 2018

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit is investigating a “potential homicide” near a Notre Dame rowing team boathouse off campus, an email Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) sent to the Notre Dame community Saturday said.

The incident occured between 3:30 and 4 a.m. Saturday in the Governor Joseph Kernan Park parking lot. The lot is next to the McConnell Family Boathouse, which the University’s rowing teams use.

According to a South Bend Tribune report, St. Joseph County metro homicide unit commander Tim Corbett said the victim was a black man who appeared to be in his 30s and died as a result of a shooting. The report also said police “apparently” have access to video of the shooting from boathouse cameras.

An individual who was with the victim when the alleged homicide occurred “has not yet been located,” the email said, and there is no information on the suspect.

Those with information can contact the County Metro Homicide Unit at 574-235-5009 or the Michiana Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP (7867).
