No new charges for Shamus Patton, 2010 expo shooter

Shamus Patton

Shamus Patton, the man convicted of shooting nine people at the 2010 Black Expo Summer Celebration, will not face charges after a recent arrest.

Patton and two others were arrested last week after a police chase.

Officers found two guns, ammunition and ski masks in the car. These belonged to one of Patton's friends.

The Marion County Prosecutor says Patton was a passenger in the car.

He did not resist arrest and was not considered an escapee from his community transition program, so no criminal charges will be filed.

Patton was free from prison on reduced time from an eight-year sentence in the shooting of several people during the 2010 Black Expo.
