A nationwide alert has been issued for a northwest Indiana murder suspect who checked himself out of an Illinois hospital earlier this year. Police say 21-year-old Mark Cherry is accused of fatally shooting a man during a home invasion in Gary in December and was badly wounded himself. He was taken to a hospital where he wasn't put under police guard, and in February walked away from the hospital. Gary Police Chief Wade Ingram says there was a communication problem between police and the hospital. "Unfortunately our investigators assumed because he was unconscious that the hospital would give the detective a call before he was released," said Chief Ingram. [Photo provided]
