The search for the man accused in the shooting death of 17-year-old Tysiona Crawford in South Bend, last month, led to a tense SWAT situation on South Bend’s south side Thursday night.
Police were called to the 200 block of East Eckman when they got a tip Rahim Brumfield was in a home in that area.
ABC 57 News reports after a lengthy standoff, officers released a chemical in the home, then learned Brumfield was not inside.
Brumfield, 20, has been charged with the alleged murder of Tysiona Crawford, back on January 18.
Police were called to the area of Clover Street and Hildreth Road where they found a vehicle, flipped on its side and riddled with bullets.
Crawford, who was behind the wheel, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Now, a search is underway for Brumfield, who is her ex-boyfriend.
Witnesses told police the two had gotten into a fight and Crawford was driving away when the shots were fired.
