Original Story:

CHESTERFIELD, Ind. – Authorities are investigating a double shooting in Chesterfield that killed a Muncie woman.

Police were first called out to the scene near Pass St. and Mulberry St. just after 7 p.m Monday.

The victim has been identified as 20-year-old Jalynn Harman. An unidentified man suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

According to investigators, four people were home at the time of the shooting.

A female roommate invited the suspect over and didn't realize he and her roommate--the male shooting victim--didn't get along. The male victim thought it was an attempted robbery, and witnesses said eight to ten shots were fired inside the home as the two men exchanged gunfire.

Police said the shooting suspect left the scene and was later found in Anderson. The house where this happened had been under investigation for possible drug activity, police said.
