Share this post

Results of an autopsy conducted in Mishawaka this afternoon have been released on a Kouts man Valparaiso Police say was fatally shot on the north side of the city early Wednesday morning by someone he knew. Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris says 31 year old Gerid Forste suffered three gunshot wounds, the most serious of which was a gunshot wound to the chest area, which caused massive internal injuries. The other two injuries were on Forste's legs.
Forste was pronounced dead at the scene in an apartment in the 31-hundred block of Black Partridge Lane. A 34-year-old man was taken into custody after police say he called 911 and later allegedly made a voluntary statement to police that he shot Forste multiple times after an altercation. Formal charges have not yet been filed.
