Gun shot fired outside of store

Daily Journal staff reports

A man fired a shot at three people outside a store on Main Street in Franklin late Saturday night after they spoke to a woman he was with.

No one was injured, and the three people who were shot at ran from the area when the shot was fired. Police could not find them, according to a Franklin police report.

Daniel Derish, 34, Indianapolis, was arrested on charges of criminal recklessness and possession of marijuana. Candice Baker, 30, 93 Schoolhouse Road, Franklin, also was arrested on charges of public indecency and assisting a criminal. She was in Derish’s vehicle during the incident.

A witness called police about 10:45 p.m. Saturday after witnessing the dispute. He told police a man put a gun in his waistband and went inside the store, and that three younger men started talking to the woman waiting in the vehicle.

When the man, later identified as Derish, came out of the store, he fired a shot at the three men, who ran, the police report said.

The witness drove around looking for the three men to make sure they were OK, and found them. They had not been injured, the report said.

Police found a shell casing in the parking lot of the business in the 1700 block of North Main Street, the report said.

The witness spotted the shooter at a nearby gas station and called police again. Derish told police he had been at the store and had words with the men, but had not fired a shot and didn’t have a gun.

Police got a search warrant for a vehicle parked at Baker’s home and found bullets that matched the shell casing found in the business parking lot, the report said.

Derish, 7149 Hartlake Place, was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was held on $4,300 bond. Baker was held on $1,000 bond.
