According to court records requested by News 10, Reynolds has been incarcerated three times for various crimes.

We learned another man has been arrested in connection with the Putnam Street shooting.

A judge found probable cause for the arrest of Tersh Scamihorn for false informing.

He told police he was at the home of Robert Lawrence on Putnam Street.

Court documents indicate Lawrence, more commonly known as R-D was the second person shot on Monday.

He told police he was there for only a short time and that he wasn't aware Amanda Kerns was there.

Police say Lawrence told them Scamihorn was there to help him move and Kerns came there that morning.

The court documents in Scamihorn's case told us something else about that day.

Lawrence told police that Kerns said Mikey Reynolds was threatening to kill her because they had broken up.

Reynolds' Facebook age indicates the two had been dating since his release from prison in 2016.

Indiana Department of Corrections records shows Reynolds was released on January 16th of 2016 after serving time for dealing meth.

Records also show that Reynolds did time starting in September of 2000.

He was sentenced to eight years in prison for burglary, attempted armed robbery, and criminal recklessness.
