INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.theindychannel) -- The man who was sentenced for shooting nine people during the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration in 2010 is on the wrong side of the law again, Indianapolis Metro Police confirmed Thursday.

Shamus Patton, 20, was found inside a vehicle after a police chase late Wednesday. Two other people with guns were also inside the car, IMPD Sgt. Linda Jackson confirmed.

Police did not immediately say if Patton faced any new charges.

Patton was 17 when he was arrested in July 2010 on 14 adult charges connected to the shootings of nine people, all between the ages of 10 and 19. He pleaded guilty to two counts of battery, criminal recklessness, criminal gang activity and carrying a handgun without a license.

As part of a plea deal, the state agreed to drop a sentencing enhancement on the criminal gang activity charge.
