Two Suspects Charged in Connection with Murder of 12-Year-Old Boy in South Bend, Indiana

A fatal shooting in South Bend last month has led to charges against two individuals. Josiah Small, a 12-year-old student at Dickinson Fine Arts Academy, was pronounced dead at the scene on October 27 near Indiana and Prairie Avenues. Another boy, aged 14, sustained a leg injury in the incident and received hospital treatment.

Nagomba White, Jr., 21, and Amarion Cutler, 18, have been implicated in the shooting. As disclosed in a recent press conference, both face charges related to the murder, with arrest warrants issued on November 6. However, details of their warrants remain under seal. White was apprehended in Indianapolis on November 9, while Cutler is still at large.

The investigation, bolstered by surveillance footage and witness testimony, indicates that Small and the injured teenager were targeted while returning home. The footage captured an exchange between the victims and the assailants, who pursued the boys in a silver sedan before opening fire.

White faces multiple charges, including murder and attempted murder. He is currently detained without bond at St. Joseph County Jail, awaiting a hearing on November 29. Cutler, charged with murder and conspiracy, is still wanted, and authorities have warned that he is considered armed and dangerous.

The public has been urged not to approach Cutler and to report any information to Michiana Crime Stoppers at 574-288-STOP or submit tips online anonymously. The police continue to seek assistance to ensure Cutler’s apprehension for his role in the tragedy.
