Two shootings in Black Oak area
Two people were shot in separate incidents in Black Oak during the weekend, police said.

On Sunday about 9 p.m., a man stopped with some family members to get something to eat near 25th Avenue and Burr Street.
As they began to drive away, several men stood on the road and stopped them, saying “this is our neighborhood” and fired into the car, striking the man’s 16-year-old son in the arm.
Detective Cpl. James Nielsen is investigating the shooting. Anyone with information can call him at 881-4754.
Man loses home for attacking sister
A Brunswick man charged with hitting his sister will have to find a place to live while his misdemeanor battery case is pending, the judge told him Monday.
Antwan Manns, 31, pleaded not guilty. When Patrolman Jeffery Frencher arrested him in the 600 block of King Street about 3 a.m. Sunday, Manns told him his mother and sister are against him and telling lies.
Frencher noted Mann’s sister had a cut on her cheek and marks on her neck, court papers state.
The victim told police her brother was outside drinking with friends and she refused to let him into the house. He kicked in the door and threatened to kill her, then attacked, the arrest report states.
Manns is being held on a $300 cash bond.
Man blames his record on brother
Tyrone Wright, 35, admitted he had marijuana hidden in his shoe when police searched him Sunday, but denied any prior criminal history, saying his brother used his name.
Gary Housing Authority officers stopped a car they saw run a red light at 25th Avenue and Harrison Street at 12:15 a.m. Sunday.
They arrested Wright, of Milwaukee, on outstanding warrants, which he said belonged to his brother, Lamont.
He pleaded guilty to the marijuana charge. Gary City Court Judge Pro Tem Itsia Rivera sentenced him to a 60-day suspended sentence and a $200 fine.
