Shooting suspect shot in Greene County. Did he die by suicide or a deputy's bullet?

Indiana State Police detectives are investigating an officer-involved shooting incident in Greene County that happened Wednesday morning on South Old Clifty Road in Owensburg.

A suspect in a shooting earlier that morning in Monroe County died at the scene. It's not yet known if the cause was a self-inflicted gunshot wound or injuries from a bullet fired by a Greene County Sheriff's Department deputy.

According to a state police news release, Greene County deputies and one from Monroe County were looking for a suspect involved in a non-fatal shooting of a woman hours earlier.

At 3:12 a.m. Wednesday, Bloomington police were called to the 7600 block of East Anderson Road to assist county deputies investigating a situation where a 31-year-old woman had been shot in the leg.

A man called 911 after his daughter arrived at his home with a gunshot injury. She had driven herself there, and reported that her ex-boyfriend had shot her the previous evening at her Eagle Pointe residence.

About 10 a.m., deputies located the suspect's vehicle parked near a tent on South Old Clifty Road.

"Upon exiting their vehicles, deputies heard a gunshot fired from the tent and they immediately took cover," the ISP news release said. "A Greene County deputy then fired his department service rifle towards the tent from which the gunshot was heard."

BPD's Critical Incident Response Team was called to the Greene County site, entered the tent and found the man deceased. An autopsy was scheduled Thursday.

The woman was treated at the hospital, and her injury was non-life threatening, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

The man who died hasn't been identified, but police said a domestic violence case had been filed against him by the victim and that a no-contact order was in effect.

ISP detectives and officers from the Bloomington Post are conducting the investigation, and will present a final report to the Greene County prosecutor.

The deputies at the scene have been placed on administrative leave, the news release said, which is customary when police officers are involved in shootings.
