Warren Township Schools on 2-hour delay as police search for suspects in chase and shooting

As an Indianapolis native, there are fewer people better-suited to report on this great city than Trevor Shirley. He was born in Chicago, but grew up on Indy’s north side; graduating from North Central High School as a proud Panther and then from Indiana University in Bloomington with a journalism degree in hand. Having reported and anchored the news in South Bend, Indiana; Sarasota, Florida; and Atlanta, Georgia, Trevor is happy to be back home, sharing great stories and digging for the truth all across Central Indiana.
As a reporter, Trevor has covered many high-profile national news stories, including hurricanes and tropical storms, Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign across Florida, and the dramatic arrival and treatment of Ebola patients in Atlanta. He also reported live from the Ferguson riots in Missouri, following the shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014 and from Chattanooga, Tennessee, after six military members were murdered by an ISIS-inspired attacker in 2015.
When not at work, Trevor enjoys traveling, reading and checking out new bars and restaurants. He also likes to stay active outside and has never been to a beach he didn’t love (as a warm weather guy, re-adjusting to the Indiana winter has been the only downside of coming back to the Midwest!). Trevor also enjoys scuba diving whenever he gets the chance.
Trevor is always looking for a great story to tell or a problem to solve. Feel free to send him an email at tshirley@fox59.com or a tweet @trevor_reports. And be sure to say hello if you see him out and about Indianapolis!!
