MUNSTER, Ind. (CBS) — Four people involved in a shootout at the Munster Tobacco and Hookah store two days before Christmas are wanted on attempted murder and other charges, police said.
On Dec. 23, Munster Police responded to the parking lot of Munster Tobacco and Hookah, 7950 Calumet Ave. for a report of shots fired.
