**UPDATE ON ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION REPORT** Earlier this evening, our agency was notified of an attempted abduction that was reported in the Park Place neighborhood. Appropriately so, our agency called out several off-duty officers and a number of K9's with our agency as well as the Hendricks County Sheriff's Department. After an exhaustive search and conducting the scene interviews, our Detectives discovered a number of inconsistencies in the report that was made to our responding officers. The child who reported the abduction later indicated to our investigators that there was no attempted abduction. We appreciate the community engagement in sharing our social media messages, and the willingness of our residents to help our responding officers who were asking many of you if you had observed an individual in the area earlier today.

*REPORTED ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION* Officers are responding to a report of an attempted child abduction in the area of Park Place/Harvest Ridge/Beechwood Farms. Officers and K9 units are searching the area and being assisted by Hendricks County Sheriff's Office. Units are searching for a male subject with blonde hair, wearing camouflage clothing with a white hood. Please call the dispatch center at 317-839-8700 with any additional information.

HAVE YOU TALKED WITH YOUR KIDS? School districts and law enforcement agencies across the country are dealing with an increase in threats made against their schools on a daily basis. Many school districts and police agencies here in central Indiana are not immune to this trend. Like most agencies, our officers will investigate every single reported communication and exhaust all resources to ensure the safety of our schools. Have you taken a moment to speak with your children about this topic? Many parents assume that their children would not engage in conversations, social media communications, or even make idle references to committing violent acts in school. Sadly, many students engage in these communications with little understanding of the seriousness of their statements. Making such statements have real consequences within our school system as well as the justice system. Please consider taking just a few minutes to reiterate the seriousness of this topic with your kids. We appreciate your continued faith in our agency to handle such matters in a safe and thorough manner.

**JUVENILE DETAINED FOR THREATS** We have received a few inquiries regarding a recent investigation associated with a threat made against Avon Middle School North. On Friday evening at approximately 9:00 p.m., Officer Diebold was dispatched to speak with an individual who wanted to report a threat made against our school corporation. Officer Diebold, as well as our School Resource Officers and Detectives responded immediately as they identified the juvenile suspect and obtained a search warrant for the suspect residence. The juvenile was located within hours of making the threat and we are pleased to inform our residents that the juvenile and his family cooperated with our investigation and we have been in constant communication with the Avon Community School Corporation. While we do not believe this individual poses a threat to our community at this time, we continue to work with the school corporation to reinforce existing safety mechanisms and to remain alert, vigilant, and engaged when it comes to any threats made against our schools. In light of the tragic events at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida, this incident in Avon is certainly an example of how strong communication between our residents, school corporation, and our agency is a vital component in keeping our community safe. We hope that you too will always have the courage to report suspicious circumstances and/or any threats whatsoever in our community and that you have faith in your local first responders to take these matters seriously.

**ARRESTS MADE IN CONNECTION TO FEBRUARY 3RD SHOOTING** On February 3rd 2018 at approximately 10:17 p.m., the Avon Police Department received a call in reference to a male subject who had been shot in the area of 103 Avon Village Drive in Avon. Officers responding to the scene located 18 year-old Austin Sloan who had sustained a gunshot wound to the chest. Officers provided medical treatment to Mr. Sloan until medics with the Washington Township / Avon Fire Department arrived on scene. Mr. Sloan was transported to Methodist hospital where he is currently listed in critical condition. Officers on scene identified two witnesses who provided information regarding two suspects and a suspect vehicle that had fled the scene. Approximately one hour after the shooting, an officer with the Brownsburg Police Department located the suspect vehicle and detained the driver, identified as 19 year-old Kelsi Glass, as well as a 14 year-old male juvenile inside of the vehicle. Ms. Glass and the juvenile were later arrested by Avon Detectives in connection to the shooting. Detectives believe that the shooting was an isolated and drug-related incident between the parties involved. Ms. Glass was released on bond from the Hendricks County Jail and the 14 year-old male juvenile remains incarcerated at this time. The investigation is ongoing at this time and final charges will be submitted to the Hendricks County Prosecutors Office. A special thanks to the Brownsburg Police Department and the Hendricks County Sheriff's Office for their assistance!
