Gunman in standoff with officers dies

By The Associated Press

LYNN — A 44-year-old man has died following a shootout with police in eastern Indiana.

John Resetar died at a hospital after officers found him Friday evening wounded and unconscious in his Lynn home, about 67 miles (107 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis near the state line with Ohio, Indiana State Police said Sunday.

Randolph County sheriff’s deputies and Lynn officers were sent to the home about 3 p.m. Friday after Resetar’s wife called emergency dispatchers about a domestic situation involving her husband who she said was armed. Shots were fired at officers as they spoke outside with her, according to state police.

More shots were fired as other officers arrived and set a perimeter around the home. The officers returned fire, state police said.

Two officers with the Lynn and Farmland police departments and a Randolph County deputy suffered minor injuries from shrapnel.

Police SWAT team members entered the home about 8 p.m. Friday and found Resetar. Firearms and several rounds of ammunition also were found in the home.
