The Kokomo Police Department issued a warrant for attempted murder for a Kokomo man following a shooting that occurred last month.
On Sept. 22, shortly after 7 a.m., officers of the Kokomo Police Department responded to the 1600 block of North Apperson Way in reference to a report of gunshots being fired. Officers arrived and learned that a 33-year-old Kokomo female had been shot in the upper leg. The victim told officers she walked out of her residence and observed an older, blue Jeep Cherokee pull up, and a light-complected black male fired multiple shots at her. The victim was treated at St. Vincent Kokomo and then transferred to an Indianapolis hospital for further treatment. According to a press release from KPD, the victim is in good condition at this time.
As a result of an ensuing investigation, Howard County Circuit Court issued a warrant for the arrest of Harron J. Burnett, 33, of Kokomo for attempted murder (level 1 felony), unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon (level 4 felony), criminal recklessness (level 5 felony), and aggravated battery (level 3 felony).
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Burnett or has additional information pertaining to the case is asked to call Detective Michael Banush at 765-456-7278 or the Kokomo Police Department Hotline at 765-456-7017. Those with information may qualify for a cash reward by calling Central Indiana Crime Stoppers at 1-800-262-TIPS with an anonymous tip.
