Two men were shot — one of them fatally — early Friday in northwest Indiana.

Officers were called to a shooting at 2:53 a.m. in the 1500 block of Broadway in Gary and found two men and a vehicle, Gary police said in a statement.

The driver was found lying on the ground nearby with multiple gunshot wounds, police said.

He was taken to Methodist Northlake Hospital in Gary, where he was pronounced dead, the Lake County coroner’s office said in a statement. The man was identified as Caty Porter, 40, of Griffith.

The 37-year-old wounded passenger was still in his seat taken to the same hospital, police said. He was transferred to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where his condition had stabilized.

Investigators believe a light-colored, possibly silver-colored Chevy 4-door vehicle was involved in the shooting, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Corporal Edward Gonzales of the Lake/Gary Metro Homicide Unit at 219-755-3852 or 866-CRIME-GP.
