HUBBELLS CORNER — An investigation continues after state police say officers fatally shot a man in southeastern Indiana after he pointed a firearm at them as they were responding to a disturbance.
Indiana State Police identified the man who was killed over the weekend as 58-year-old Christopher A. Schmitt.
Police say a state trooper and a Dearborn County sheriff’s deputy were investigating a report of an armed man when they approached a home Saturday morning in rural Dearborn County near the village of Hubbells Corner, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Cincinnati.
Police said Schmitt, who lived at the home, pointed a firearm at them and both officers fired. Schmitt was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The officers involved were identified as Trooper Jordan Craig and Deputy Brian Weigel. Neither was injured.
