LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — An injured Indiana soldier has been arrested on the eve of his homecoming parade on charges that he shot another man.
A Tippecanoe County Jail officer said 24-year-old Eric S. Braman was released on $5,000 bond Saturday. He had turned himself in earlier to face preliminary charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and possession of a handgun without a permit.
The Journal & Courier reports Lafayette police say Braman fired two shots during an argument with 31-year-old Andrew Studer, injuring him either by a bullet or debris kicked up by the shots. Police say the wound was minor and Studer refused medical treatment at the scene.
The newspaper reported that a homecoming parade to honor Braman scheduled for Sunday in downtown Lafayette has been canceled.
