Share this post

A number of charges, including murder, have been filed against a 21 year old man in the death of a Gary resident earlier this month. According to court documents, Mark Cherry, of Gary, is accused of killing 22 year old Rolando Correa at a home in the 62-hundred block of West 29th Avenue, shortly after midnight on December 2nd. Investigators say it was determined that three masked gunmen came to the front door of the residence and tried to get in, then went around to the side door, where they came into contact with one of the occupants of the home. Police say they led him back into the house at gunpoint, a struggle ensued and shots were fired. Four people were shot, including Cherry, authorities say, and a man later identified by the Lake County Coroners Office as 22-year-old Rolando Correa was pronounced dead at approximately 2 am at an area hospital.
