HUNTINGTON — Police say an officer-involved shooting in northeastern Indiana has left a man dead.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Brian Walker says Huntington County and Huntington city officers were called to a home Wednesday afternoon to check on a man considering hurting himself. Walker says officers found the man armed at a park and he didn't comply with officers' commands, and a foot chase ensued.
Walker says one officer fired a shot, but it wasn't clear if anyone else did. It wasn't clear what caused the officer to shoot.
He says the incident is being investigated as a police-action shooting.
The man who died hasn't been identified.
Huntington is about 20 miles southwest of Fort Wayne.
