Evansville Police have arrested 3 people in connection with the January 1, 2018 shooting death of D’Angelo White. A 4th suspect remains at large.
Investigators believe White was lured to the 1400 block of S Bedford by 17-year-old Charissa Robinson. (Because Robinson is charged as an adult in this case, she is being publicly identified.) Prior to the murder, Robinson sent White a message saying she wanted to buy marijuana from him. Police believe the drug deal was arranged with the purpose of robbing White.
White arrived at 1406 S. Bedford and Robinson got into his car. Robinson examined two large bags of marijuana and agreed to buy $25 worth of the drug. As White and Robinson were conducting the drug deal, Mykel Blair (18), Noah Coleman (20), and Derrick Butts (38) approached the car. During the robbery, White was shot. Investigators believe Mykel Blair was the person who fired shots into the car. White was able to drive away, but crashed a short distance away. He died from his gunshot injuries. Police recovered 68 grams of marijuana in White’s car. White was killed over less than $500 worth of marijuana.

Your Indiana State Police is joining law-enforcement agencies across Indiana this March to increase dangerous and impaired driving patrols for the NCAA Tournament and St. Patrick’s Day.
Last year, the weekend beginning St. Patrick’s Day had the highest number crashes involving impaired drivers. With March 17, 2018 falling on a Saturday, police are conducting random patrols, saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints intended to make our roads safer.
“This is when we celebrate a time honored Hoosier tradition, March Madness and basketball,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter. “However if you drink, your plans should include a designated driver, ride sharing program, or taxi to get you home safely from your celebration. Troopers will be out looking for those drivers who fail to heed this advice and will provide another form of transportation to those drivers; but it won’t be to their home.”

Attorney General Curtis Hill is sending out a public safety advisory today to increase awareness of Indiana’s “Red Flag Law,” a statute enacted in 2005 allowing law enforcement officers to take possession of firearms from people they believe to be dangerous as defined in the statute. Indiana is one of five states in the nation to have such laws.
“Like all Americans, I was sickened by the horrifying news last week out of Parkland, Florida,” Attorney General Hill said. “Tragedies like this one are staining our nation. As we lift up our voices in prayer for the victims and their families, we must renew our commitment to taking concrete actions to stop gun violence in our country.”
