Harnett isn’t charged with shooting 17-year-old Daymarr Kennedy, who died Monday at a Muncie hospital. Delaware County deputy prosecutor Zach Craig says more charges might be filed after ballistic tests are completed.

Harnett told police he shot another partygoer who pointed handgun at him. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
