SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) —Violence has flared again in the Indiana city where Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is mayor.

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit says 27-year-old Brandon Williams of Niles, Michigan, died after a shooting at Kelly’s pub in South Bend. Another 10 people were wounded by gunshots in South Bend early Sunday.

A statement says that five of the 10 wounded remain in the hospital in stable condition. The others were treated and released.

St. Joseph County Sheriff William Redman says that his officers assisted South Bend police in “controlling a crowd of over 100 upset and angry citizens” who came to Memorial Hospital from Kelly’s Pub early Sunday, causing a lockdown at the hospital.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting. No suspect has been apprehended.

Buttigieg later Sunday faced criticism at a town hall meeting from angry black residents of South Bend, Indiana, at an emotional town hall meeting a week after a white police officer fatally shot a black man in the city where he is mayor.

Buttigieg (BOO’-tuh-juhj) said he would call for an outside investigation of the shooting of 54-year-old Eric Logan by Sgt. Ryan O’Neill.

The town hall grew contentious when some community members questioned whether the mayor had done enough to reform the police department in the city of 100,000 people, which is about a quarter black.

Buttigieg left the campaign trail for several days to deal with the reaction to the shooting, holding a late night news conference, meeting with the family of the man killed and addressing a protest rally where he was heckled by some in the crowd.

  1. The bible instructs us to pray for our enemies so Lord I pray for both mrknowitall “NOT” and “simple” Pete that before they leave this world that they would give their hearts to You and experience the true love of Christ—otherwise, they are in for a rude awakening at the end of their lives. There are no exit doors in hell fellas!

      You need to save your prayers for the dysfunctional, dope dealing, murdering, cop hating, European American, hating black racist black bigots you live around. I’ll pray for you.

    • Funny, yet not a peep out of you in regards to 99 percent of the others like Ted Gravely, L, American, Honestly, and D whopost the most vile, anti-white comments I have ever seen on a daily basis. Trust me, I have lived around all races and hands down blacks are the most racist. Kiss my white a–ss you racist!

    Black racist welfare queens, raising black racist thugs. It’s a racist, black, high crime thing. Stop blaming European Americans for your world wide failures.

  3. A simple check of demographics in south bend tells you everything. It is 26 percent black! Anywhere blacks go, any city the inhabit the violence goes up 10 fold. In this, they are the true “gold standard.”
