The Indiana State Police will do an investigation into how this tragedy occurred.
WISH-TV reports that the state of Indiana mourns the lost of the three year deputy.
In a press conference on Monday morning, Howard County Sheriff Steve Rodgers identified Dorsey as the suspect. He already had an outstanding warrant in Clinton County when the shooting happened. Dorsey was shot and the circumstances around his death are unclear.
According to jail records, Dorsey had three different arrests for him. The last time police made contact with him was in December for a violation of probation for possession of a controlled substance. A warrant was issued and he was arrested on Dec. 30.
Outside officers will be patrolling Howard County over the next few days, as the Howard County Department Department grieves. Counselors will also be on hand for employees at the Howard County sheriff’s department.
Here's a quick poll. I want to know who really takes the blame now that the suspect is caught!
World News Today send our condolences to the family of Carl Koontz.
