IUP student shot in off-campus incident
INDIANA – State police have been searching for a man charged with shooting an Indiana University of Pennsylvania student in the leg in a possible road rage incident.
Trooper John Matchik said police believe the suspect, Eagan Minich, 29, of Indiana, somehow became angry when a man jumped out of the passenger seat of a vehicle in front of Minich’s while both were stopped at a red light about 2 a.m. Thursday.
Police said the shooting victim, 20-year-old student Hayden Warmke, did that only so he could go around the vehicle in which he was riding and secure a rear hatch that wasn’t closed properly.
But police said Minich apparently was upset or misinterpreted Warmke’s actions and followed the vehicle Warmke was in to an off-campus parking lot.
That’s where Warmke was shot in a confrontation.
