2 arrested after fatal Steuben County shooting of Muncie man

FREMONT, Ind. — Authorities say two men have been arrested after a Muncie man was fatally shot at home in northeastern Indiana.

The Steuben County Sheriff's Department says deputies found 29-year-old Ruben Sanchez Jr. of Muncie Indiana suffering from gunshot wounds in the front yard of a home near Jimmerson Lake. He was pronounced dead at a Fort Wayne hospital.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

The sheriff's department says 28-year-old Mark Zachery Hines of Fremont has been charged with murder, and 18-year-old Tyler Lee Biggs is charged with aiding in murder. They're being held without bond in the Steuben County Jail. It wasn't clear whether either man has an attorney.

Jimmerson Lake, near Pokagan State Park, is located about 40 miles north of Fort Wayne.
