Man shot Saturday dies

Tre Buggs, one of three people wounded while riding in a car Saturday night, was pronounced dead at 9 p.m. Sunday, a news release issued by the Lake County coroner on Thursday states.

Buggs, 19, of East Chicago, was a passenger in a car driven by Larry Hopkins, 17, of Gary. They were stopped at 19th Avenue and Chase Street about 8 p.m. when occupants of another car fired at them. Hopkins was struck several times.

Rashaunta Lewis, 17, and her sister were in the back seat when the shooting began. Lewis was also wounded. Buggs was shot in the head and was maintained on life support until his organs could be donated.

Detective Lorenzo Davis is investigating. Anyone with information can call him at 881-4738.
