Police search for man who fired shots into vehicle

Thursday, July 8, 2004

- Argument was apparent motive, say ISP officials

State Police are searching for a man who fired several shots into a vehicle in Coalmont Wednesday.

According to a release from the Indiana State Police, Chance Kernstein, 20, took an unidentified firearm and discharged several rounds into a Toyota Corolla belonging to his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Edington, of Coalmont.

According to State Trooper Dave Kuhn, the shooting was apparently a reaction to an argument Kernstein and Edington had earlier in the day.

"Apparently it wasn't physical so much as verbal," Kuhn said. "A little bit after they had the dispute, Kernstein came back and fired at the car."

Kernstein is wanted for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and a warrant has been issued. Police are searching Clay, Vigo, and Sullivan counties for the suspect. Kernstein lives in Shelburn.

"The warrant is still very active," Kuhn said.
