Suspect in Little 500 weekend shooting arrested and charged


A Bloomington man has been charged with attempted murder and carrying a handgun without a license in connection with the shooting of a 26-year-old man that occurred April 23, during Little 500 weekend, according to The Herald-Times.

Michael V. Carson Jr., 33, was arrested on May 26. He is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail.

Carson was determined to be a suspect after witnesses identified him as the person who fired a gun in response to an altercation. The incident was captured on video surveillance near Sixth and Lincoln streets.  

The shooting occurred within a half hour of the shooting at Kalao Restaurant and Nightclub but was determined to be unrelated. 

Officers on the scene found a man with a gunshot wound to his abdomen in the passenger seat of a car. He was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and transferred to an Indianapolis hospital by helicopter May 16.
