Indy Expo Shooter Faces 6 Felony Forgery Charges

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.theindychannel.com) -- Shamus Patton, the man who was sentenced for shooting nine people during the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration in 2010 is facing six felony counts of forgery after he allegedly falsified employer contact information while on a job search.

Patton, 20, was taken into custody last Wednesday after the vehicle he was riding in was pulled over on a traffic stop. As part of a plea deal from the 2010 case, Patton had been serving his probation at Brandon Hall, a correctional transitional living facility.

Before going on his job search, investigators said Patton was given a contact sheet to turn in to potential employers. Patton later told probation officers he put in applications at Dollar Tree, Pizza Hut, CVS, Mr. Gyro's, EZ Pawn and Super 8 Motel, but the contact information he listed proved otherwise, police said.

Patton was accused of forging the names of the employer contacts at each business, investigators said, which violates his parole. He could lose the plead deal he was given in the 2010 Black Expo shootings.
