A Lawrence County Sheriff’s Deputy and a Mitchell police officer were shot and airlifted to a hospital early Sunday morning after a suspect fled a traffic stop.
The violence unfolded around 3:15 a.m. in Mitchell, Indiana. A sheriff’s deputy pulled over a vehicle in the 4800 block of SR 37 for a traffic violation, Indiana State Police said. A second sheriff’s deputy, his K9 partner, and a Mitchell police officer arrived on scene to assist.
The K9 alerted the officers to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle which officers found after a search, state police said. The officers attempted to arrest the suspect who fled on foot, running west across SR 37 into a grassy area.
The officers caught up to the suspect, but he resisted arrested, state police said. A scuffle ensued, and the suspect produced a handgun and fired at the officers. Two officers were struck and at least one of them was able to return gunfire, wounding the suspect.
