Report: Dumes charged in shooting
Former Indiana University basketball player Devan Dumes reportedly has been charged with attempted murder in connection with an attempted carjacking and theft.
According to a report in The Indianapolis Star, police were called to an Indianapolis-area hospital on Jan. 11, where they interviewed Keith Jones, who had been shot in the neck.
Jones told police that he met Dumes at a night club, according to a probable cause affadavit, and the two agreed that Jones would sell his car to Dumes. Dumes, however, brandished a handgun and shot Jones, according to the affadavit.
Police found a semi-automatic handgun in Jones' Chevrolet Camaro, the Star reported, but Jones denied that it was his.
Dumes, who played at Indiana from 2008-10, had been charged last week with criminal recklessness and carrying a handgun without a license in a different incident, The Star reported. Those charges were in relation to a Jan. 9 incident in which police say he fired a handgun at a house while his brother and 1-year-old nephew were inside.
Dumes played in 27 games, mostly as a starter, for Indiana in 2008-09 and averaged 12.7 points per game. The following season, he came off the bench for all 30 games he played and averaged 6.6 points per game. The Indianapolis native played at Eastern Michigan and Vincennes before transferring to Indiana.
Dumes has an initial criminal-court hearing on Thursday.
