SUNMAN, Ind. (WISH) — A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Ripley County Sunday, Indiana State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Stephen Wheeles said on Twitter.
Officers responded to a residence in the 8000 block of East County Road 900 North near Sunman around 9 a.m. on reports of a domestic disturbance.
Police determined that a gun was involved in the incident and that Joshua Ebinger, 37, of Osgood, was violating a protective order a woman at the residence had in place against him.
When officers arrived, Ebinger exited the home with a handgun. After ignoring numerous commands to drop the weapon, Ebinger was shot by police.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
No officers were injured, Wheeles said.
