ISP investigating officer-involved shooting in Wayne County

CENTERVILLE, IN — Indiana State Police are looking into an officer-involved shooting in Wayne County Sunday night.

A Centerville police officer and a Wayne County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a home where a woman who had threatened suicide was sitting on the front porch with a weapon and refused to drop it.

Investigators say the woman pointed the gun at officers, which led to the deputy firing a round that hit her.

The woman is in the hospital with at least one gunshot wound.

Both the deputy and the Centerville police officer are on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
