La PORTE — The Criminal Investigations Division of the La Porte County Sheriff’s Department is conducting a death investigation.

On Friday, Midnight Shift patrol deputies were summoned to a residence in the 2800 west block of CR-450N, regarding a disturbance. On Saturday, detectives were notified that one of the involved subjects, a 15-year old male, had died at another location.

The sheriff’s department released a statement Monday asking the public not to speculate on the circumstances and be respectful of the decedent’s family and allow them privacy as they grieve the loss of a loved family member. The sheriff's department stated that the public should also know there is no immediate risk or danger to anyone else.

The sheriff's department stated that the investigation is open and active and no further information will be released at this time.
