According to a release from Fishers Police Department, two officers responded to a welfare check on Donadio Monday around 10:15 a.m. after receiving a call from the man’s former in-law, who was concerned Donadio was having an emotional crisis.

They arrived in the area of Colbarn Drive and Sunblest Boulevard to find Donadio sitting in his parked car with a handgun. He made threats to the officers, leading to officers firing shots at Donadio.

Officers said the man then turned the gun on himself, killing himself.

An official with FPD was unsure if one or both officers fired weapons. FPD said the man in the car did not fire any shots at the officers.

The man died on the scene. The officers were unharmed.

Officers on the scene described the situation as “over” as of 11:45 a.m.

Investigators with Fishers police have started an investigation into the matter.

Both officers involved have been placed on administrative duty pending the investigation results.
