PERU -- Miami County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 18-year-old Logansport resident Brayden Berkshire in the Sunday shooting death of 18-year-old Nathan Joe Hopper, according to a press release from the Miami County Sheriff’s Office.

Hopper, whose body was found early Sunday morning, was pronounced dead by gunshot wound at the scene.

According to updated information, Berkshire was arrested on initial charges of level 5 felony reckless homicide and level 6 felony obstruction of justice for her “alleged involvement of the Feb. 2 shooting death of Nathaniel Hopper.”

Berkshire was arrested by sheriff's department detectives near 7 p.m. Monday without incident. She was released from the Miami County Jail just before midnight Monday on a $1,500 cash bond.
