According to information from Batesville Police Chief Stan Holt, a stabbing is being investigated that occurred Sunday night, March 14.

Chief Holt said officers responded to a call to the dispatch center that came from the Margaret Mary Hospital’s emergency room about 8:00 p.m. reporting a 20-year-old man came in with a stab wound.
Sergeant Doug Wolfer and Patrolman Jamie Straber responded to the call and met with the victim, who was identified as Shey Gorsuch. The officers saw that Gorsuch had a severe stab wound to his abdomen.
Gorsuch told police he was at his residence on Herman Street in Batesville, when he got into an altercation with a 17-year-old male family member. He told the officers that he was stabbed and the relative left the home in a vehicle.

Additional Batesville officers were called out to assist in the investigation and to search for the suspect.
About 9:22 p.m. the suspect was seen in a vehicle traveling southbound on Huntersville Road at the intersection of Columbus Avenue. Several officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and took the juvenile suspect into custody without incident. The suspect was detained at the Dearborn County Juvenile Detention Center on preliminary charges of Aggravated Battery.

The officers worked until about 2:00 a.m. Monday morning processing the crime scene, interviewing the witnesses and following up on the investigation, according to Chief Holt.
