(SEYMOUR) - 25-year-old Andrea M. Hollin of North Vernon was arrested Thursday evening and faces a charge of armed robbery for her involvement in the downtown homicide early Thursday morning.

Police Chief Bill Abbott says 42-year-old Gilbert Engle of Seymour was found shot and killed in the 200 block of North Chestnut Street.

Police say two other suspects involved are still being sought by police. They are 32-year-old Daniel Combs and 21-year-old Jessica Jarrell, both of North Vernon.

The couple is possibly driving a stolen blue PT Cruiser with the license plate 802LWP and are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who has information should call police.

Seymour police are investigating the shooting death of a 42-year-old man in his downtown apartment.

Police Chief Bill Abbott said it occurred in the 200 block of North Chestnut Street and was reported early Thursday around 5:45 a.m. and the man's body was found by his roommate.

"There were some life-saving measures taken initially, once the ambulance and everyone responded it was determined he was deceased," Abbott added. "We do believe they are acquaintances."

The man's name is not being released pending notification of relatives.

Police are looking for two persons of interest 32-year-old Daniel Combs and 21-year-old Jessica Jarrell both of North Vernon. Police say they are armed and dangerous.

"That's why I encourage that nobody actually try to apprehend them. Just call us and let us know where they're at," Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott says.

Police believe the victim was robbed of cash and those involved left the area in a stolen 2006 dark blue metallic PT Cruiser with black after-market rims and the license plate 802LWP, which was the scene at the 200 block of North Chestnut Street. They were last seen in the Columbus area.

Combs and Jarrell were talking about getting rid of the PT Cruiser when the one witness left them in Columbus. So it is possible they aren't still in that car, Abbott added.

The vehicle is registered to Amanda Grajales of North Vernon who witnessed the shooting.

Police say there were five people in the apartment at the time of the incident.

Investigators believe marijuana and methamphetamines may have been a factor in the crime.

Police say two people inside the apartment complex left, heard gunshots, and then saw Combs and Jarrell come out with a handgun.

Both suspects have criminal histories. Combs criminal history includes convictions for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. Jarrell has been convicted of battery of a police officer and resisting arrest.
