CRAWFORDSVILLE — Police in western Indiana have shot a suspect who pointed a gun at officers at the end of a standoff lasting more than six hours, Indiana State Police said.
The shooting occurred around 8:30 p.m. Monday at a home along Indiana 47 in Crawfordsville, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) miles northwest of Indianapolis, police said.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department was called to a domestic battery report there around 2:15 p.m. Monday. Upon arrival, a deputy was able to get a woman out of the home, police said.
The man barricaded himself inside the home with a gun, and police called in a SWAT team. The man then fired several shots at officers. When the man went to a window and pointed a gun at officers, an officer shot him, police said.
The man was airlifted to an Indianapolis-area hospital. Police have not released his name.
