A 35-year-old man was killed in a shooting Sunday in northwest Indiana.

A woman called police at 11:04 p.m. to report that her boyfriend was shot inside a home in the 5200 block of East 13th Place in Gary, according to a statement from Gary police.

Officers arrived to find Reginald Hamilton dead inside the home with a gunshot wound to his chest, according to police and the Lake County coroner’s office. His death was ruled a homicide.

Investigators learned Hamilton was at the home for a gathering with several other people that evening when a rifle discharged, killing him, authorities said.

Another male who was inside the home was taken to a hospital with head injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, police said. Investigators believe other people inside the home may have battered him after the gun went off.

The rifle was recovered at the scene and detectives are still looking into the circumstances of the shooting, police said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Corporal James Bond with the Lake/Gary Metro Homicide Unit at 219-755-3852 or the crime tip line at 866-274-6347.
