RIPLEY COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — A 48-year-old man is in the hospital after being shot by officers in Holton.

It happened at 5:00 p.m Friday evening in the 4000 block of North County Road 850 West.

Authorities originally reported to the home on a domestic disturbance call. That’s when Timmy Wayne Bowman armed himself with a firearm and fired at least one shot at the responding officers outside.

Police returned fire and struck Bowman, who returned back inside his home.

Indiana State Police would later bring in negotiators to end the stand off, which ended when Bowman surrendered at 10:00 p.m.

Bowman was transported to the University of Cincinnati Trauma Center to treat his wounds.

No officers were hurt in the incident.

The investigation is still ongoing.
