MIAMI COUNTY, Ind. — Four teens have been arrested on a preliminary charge of murder after a man was found shot to death in his apartment in Converse.

According to Indiana State Police, officers responded to a possible shooting in Converse on Sunday at approximately 10:15 p.m. at 110 W. Wabash Street. Inside an apartment, officers found a 23-year-old man who had been shot and killed.

Police later identified the man as Anthony Leadford.

During the investigation into Leadford’s death, detectives collected enough information to arrest Aryan Vandiver-Stone, 19, Marion and Benjamin Jones 18, of rural Converse. Both were taken to Miami County Jail.
