[ISP] State Police Investigate Early Morning Vehicle Pursuit, Shooting
Start Date: 2/10/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM

Entry Description

Orange County (Valeene): The Indiana State Police is investigating an early morning pursuit that began in Harrison County and ended in Orange County.

Investigators report that at 1:59 A.M., the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department initiated a vehicle pursuit on a black Honda Civic in Palmyra. The pursuit traveled west on US 150 through Washington County and into Orange County, where it reached Rego. The pursuit continued south through county roads, eventually traveling onto Valeene Road. The suspect vehicle turned west at County Road 820 South, which dead ended.

Upon reaching the dead end point, the suspect vehicle turned around and faced the deputy. The deputy exited his vehicle and ordered the suspect, at gunpoint, to stop. As the suspect vehicle proceeded forward towards the deputy, the deputy began firing his weapon, striking two suspects inside the vehicle through the windshield. The vehicle continued at the deputy, striking him and throwing him onto the hood of his patrol car. The deputy suffered injuries to his legs and back. An Indiana Conservation Officer was behind the deputy, blocked the suspect vehicle, and ordered the suspects out of the vehicle. The suspects were taken into custody without further incident.

State Police investigators and crime scene technicians remain on scene this morning conducting the investigation. Names of those involved in the incident are not being released at this time.
