MARION, Ind. — The Marion Police Department says a man is in the hospital after being shot at a home in Marion.

Around 11 p.m. Friday, police say they and Marion General Hospital personnel were called to a home in the 5000 block of Prestwick Square for a person shot.

When they arrived, responders found a 30-year-old Marion man suffering two gunshot wounds and immediately began treating him.

The man was taken via ambulance to Marion General Hospital before being air-lifted to a Fort Wayne hospital, according to officials.

Marion police say the man went into surgery Saturday morning and is considered to be in “stable-critical condition.”

Around 11:45 a.m. Saturday, officials say a search warrant was executed at a home in the 3600 block of South Washington Street. That search warrant led to the arrest of 54-year-old Jacob Edmond McGee. McGee was taken to the Marion Police Department without incident and agreed to speak with detectives about the shooting.

Police say McGee is facing preliminary charges of aggravated battery, serious violent felon in possession of a handgun and criminal recklessness resulting in serious bodily injury while armed with a deadly weapon.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to contact the Marion Police Department at 765-662-9981 or call CRIME STOPPERS of Central Indiana anonymously at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
