GAS CITY, Ind. — Indiana State Police are investigating after a man trapped inside an SUV with two bodies inside showed up outside City Hall in Gas City.

Investigators believe 48-year-old Eric Huffman and his wife, 43-year-old Telina Huffman, both of Marion, got into an argument Monday afternoon while riding in an SUV driven by a 69-year-old family member. During the argument, Eric Huffman pulled out a handgun and fatally shot his wife.

The family member, who was driving, and Eric Huffman wrestled for control of the gun. During the struggle, the family member lost control of the SUV and crashed into a parked semi-trailer at a business on East First Street in Gas City. As a result of the crash, Huffman got control of the gun and shot himself.

Due to damage to the SUV’s door, the family member was unable to get out of the vehicle. He drove to Gas City Town Hall on East Main Street and blew the vehicle’s horn until employees came outside to help. He had to be cut from the SUV by the Gas City Fire Department.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Indiana State Police Detective Mike Lorona by calling 765-473-6666.
