Underwood accused of shooting at house

ASHLEY SLOBODA | The Journal Gazette

The man acquitted of the murder of a popular football coach faces more legal trouble after authorities say he shot at a house and injured someone inside, according to court documents filed today.

Henry Eshon Underwood, 25, is charged with felony criminal recklessness, accused of firing a gun at a residence in the 3900 block of South Monroe Street on the city's south side about 8:20 p.m. Dec. 30.

Fort Wayne police officers found four shell casings and gunfire damage outside the home and a spent round inside the house, court documents said.

A person inside the residence, identified only as a male, suffered a small cut on his right calf, the document added.

Underwood, noted as homeless in court documents, was acquitted in early October of the murder and robbery of popular football coach Terrance Miles, 36, in May 2017.

Underwood was arrested last week on a charge of being a felon carrying a handgun.
