CROWN POINT — Residents of Crown Point’s Wingate subdivision were subjected to an alleged drive-by shooting about noon Thursday.

Officers with Lake County Sheriff’s Department responded Thursday to reports of shots fired in the 700 block of West 129th Court in Crown Point, the department said in a statement to The Times. When they arrived, officers reportedly discovered that a home had been struck by multiple rounds, one of which penetrated interior walls.

Authorities said no one was injured.

The incident was captured on a video that depicts someone driving toward the house and shooting. That video was shared with police and posted to Facebook. It’s unclear from the video what direction exactly the shots were fired, but authorities said they were fired at a nearby pole where a camera was mounted.

The Sheriff’s Department said it quickly identified a suspect: 22-year-old Garrett Blaize, of Vincennes in southern Indiana. Blaize was possibly suffering “an undetermined mental health crisis,” the department said.

Investigators with the department reportedly tracked his location and alerted law enforcement agencies along his path of travel south toward Vincennes. An Indiana State Police trooper reportedly took the man into custody without incident near Cayuga, one hour south of Crown Point. Upon his arrest, Blaize was allegedly armed with a handgun, and several spent shell casings were reportedly found with him.

Blaize was charged with criminal recklessness, a level 5 felony, as well as two misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief. He was taken to the Lake County Jail in Crown Point, the department said.
