An Indiana high school varsity player has been charged with reckless homicide in connection with the fatal shooting of a former student.

Investigators are looking into her alleged role in the shooting death of Nathan Joe Hopper.

The Miami County Sheriff’s Office said they responded around 7 a.m. Sunday to a report of a shooting at Hopper’s residence, which is around 80 miles north of Indianapolis.
Officers determined Hopper suffered a gunshot wound and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Hopper graduated from Logansport High School in Logansport, Indiana, where Berkshire is a senior honor roll student and a member of the varsity volleyball team.
‘This is a tragic event, and we want to allow the authorities to do their investigation,’ the school’s principal, Matt Jones, said on Tuesday.
No publicly revealed motive in shooting death of Nathan Joe Hopper:
Reported heavy: ‘Berkshire has multiple active Facebook pages. The page with the most recent update, Berkshire says that she lives in Logansport and that she has been in a relationship since November 2017. On a different page, Berkshire says that she started a different profile after her original profile was hacked. In the About section of the page, Berkshire says that she is a model at Hollister.’
Of note- the individual with whom Berkshire describes having a relationship with isn’t identified by the varsity student.
