(GARY) - Lake County Sheriff John Buncich says they're "very, very, very close" to filing criminal charges in court in connection with last week's shooting death of Gary Patrolman Jeffrey Westerfield.
He told the Post-Tribune that police received some information as a result of the reward he offered last week.
Police arrested three people hours after Westerfield's body was discovered in his patrol car, and one is still being held in Lake County Jail pending charges. That "person of interest" is being held on an unrelated court warrant from Porter County.
