NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana teenager honored for helping save two children from icy waters in 2010 has died in a weekend shooting.
Noblesville police say 16-year-old Aubrey Peters was pronounced dead late Sunday after suffering a gunshot wound to the chest inside a home in the Indianapolis suburb.
Twenty-year-old Jacob Travis McDaniel faces preliminary charges of criminal recklessness and pointing a firearm.
Lt. Bruce Barnes says the case is under investigation. Three people were inside the house with Peters at the time of the shooting.
The Red Cross honored Peters for helping to save two young girls who fell through the ice on Morse Reservoir in 2010. Peters was a seventh-grader when she heard the screams of 7-year-old and 4-year-old sisters and alerted 911 and her grandparents, who helped save the girls.
