    IN - Shane, 40, & Katelin Williamson, 14, murdered, Hartford City, 5 Feb 2015

    A shooting in Hartford City Thursday morning left two people dead and had schools in two counties on lockdown while police searched for a suspect.

    The victims were identified by police as a man and his teenage daughter. One was found inside an apartment building at 202 E. Monroe St., and the other outside the building.

    The suspect in the shooting was described as a white male on a bicycle, according to emergency scanner traffic. Police confirmed before 1 p.m. that a suspect had been taken into custody in Jay County.

    Hartford City is a city of about 6,000 about 50 miles south of Fort Wayne. No names yet. One wonders if a father was trying to protect his daughter from a jealous boyfriend...

    Her boyfriend says he’s devastated and wants to know who would do this and why. “She was always happy, smiling, she was a happy girl,” said boyfriend.

    Katelyn Williamson’s boyfriend was at a lost for words Thursday afternoon, just hours after learning that his girlfriend was shot and killed in her apartment.

    What is with this suspect? Was he bothering the girl outside and she went in and the dad came out to warn off the guy? Pretty brazen to shoot 2 people in the daytime.

    Charles R. Whittington hid his face and would not speak after appearing in court Monday on charges that he shot Shane Williamson, and his 14-year-old daughter, Katelin...

    Young took the extraordinary step of gagging attorneys and law enforcement involved in the case from talking about the probable cause and motive behind the killings...

    Basey declined to comment as did Hartford City Police Chief Scott Mealy who was quoted in a local newspaper about witnesses identifying the suspect. That report also indicated that Whittington, who is a member of a Portland motorcycle club. And that Whittington was upset over photos Williamson had of the suspect's ex-girlfriend.

    Also from OkieGranny's link: There were other reports that Whittington, also known as "Mad Dog" in the motorcycle club, also was involved in drug and sex trafficking in Indiana and Ohio.

    Earlier this month:

    His victims’ mother and grandmother urged him to explain what had led him to fatally shoot not only her 40-year-old son, but also his 14-year-old daughter.

    But Charles “Mad Dog” Whittington – sentenced Monday to a maximum 170-year prison term – said nothing in response.

    A Blackford Circuit Court jury on Nov. 9 found the 60-year-old Portland man guilty of two counts of murder in the Feb. 5 slaying of Shane Williamson and his daughter, Katelin...
