Person shot, wounded by SWAT serving warrant

By The Associated Press

LAGODA — Authorities say a person has been shot and wounded after firing a gun at a SWAT team that was trying to serve a felony warrant in Indiana.

State police say the Montgomery County multi-jurisdictional SWAT team went to a home near the Montgomery County community of Ladoga about 10 p.m. Wednesday to execute the warrant and the person opened fire. They fired back and the person was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

No officers were injured in the exchange of gunfire about 35 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The Montgomery County sheriff’s office asked state police to investigate the shooting. Prosecutors will then review the case. Additional details weren’t immediately released.
