A man accused in a double shooting outside the 7-Eleven store at Mishawaka Avenue and Main Street in Mishawaka faces attempted murder and aggravated battery charges.

Emmett White, 25, is set for an initial bail hearing Wednesday.

The shooting happened during the early morning hours of June 20. According to court documents, White fired at the victim’s car, which took off and crashed in front of a nearby church. They say the bullets struck a man in the arm and a woman in the jaw.

The woman has had to undergo several reconstructive surgeries and has only been able to answer investigators’ questions by nodding or shaking her head.

Police were called to the convenience store around 3:35 a.m. on Saturday, June 20 on reports of multiple shots fired in the parking lot.

When officers arrived they discovered more than 10 shell casing laying in the parking lot near the gas pumps. Witnesses on scene said the suspect left the area and the victim’s car took off north bound on North Main Street.

Officers discovered a maroon car had crashed into a utility pole approximately a few blocks from the scene of 7-Eleven.

Inside the vehicle, officers found two gunshot victims with serious injuries.
