Officers were searching for a subject wanted for questioning in a domestic battery case around 6:30 p.m. Monday evening. Officers were informed that the subject may have been armed with a gun. A trooper from the Indiana State Police Bremen Post spotted the subject as he pulled into the K-Mart parking lot off of Oak Road in Plymouth. After stopping the white van, with the subject inside, the trooper waited briefly for a Plymouth Police Officer to assist. Both officers approached the vehicle asking the driver to step out of the vehicle. Allegedly the man refused and immediately drew a gun raising it at the officers. Both officers opened fire hitting the subject multiple times. - See more at:
