INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– New charges have been filed against the man convicted in the 2010 Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration shootings, announced Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry on Friday.

Shamus Patton, 20, has been charged with six counts of forgery, Class C felonies, for allegedly falsifying the signatures of business managers on work release documents.

In June, Patton was serving time at a work release facility through the Indiana Department of Correction. Inmates involved in the program are allowed passes to leave the facility to search for employment.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Patton submitted Daily Employer Contact Sheets that required signatures from each business he was supposed to contact. He is accused of submitting the sheets with forged signatures from six businesses from June 10 to June 17.
