INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A man sentenced to eight years in prison in 2011 for shooting nine people during the 2010 Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration has been arrested again after being released to a community transition program.
Twenty-year-old Shamus Patton was arrested early Thursday on a preliminary charge of resisting police after fleeing from a vehicle that Indianapolis police had pulled over.
Volunteers of America Director Mary Leffler says her program reported Patton as missing after he didn't return on time from a job search Wednesday.
Patton was convicted of nine counts of battery and one of criminal recklessness for the 2010 shootings in downtown Indianapolis.
Under a law passed by the General Assembly this year, prisoners will have to serve at least 75 percent of their prison sentences.
