The investigation into the fatal shooting of a Gary police officer is continuing.
Now a northwest Indiana judge has issued a gag order in the case.
24 year old Carl Le’Ellis Blount Jr. of Gary is charged with murder in the July 6 shooting death of Officer Jeffrey Westerfield.
A magistrate entered a not guilty plea for Blount on Friday.
Blount’s next court hearing is July 30.
His public defender requested the gag order.
The death penalty is possible in this case if more charges are filed and the officer’s widow says that she is in favor of that.
