SEYMOUR, Ind. — Police officers in Seymour shot a man they say stole a few things from a Walmart. State police are investigating the incident. They say two Seymour officers were called to a Walmart about someone stealing.
“Upon arriving in the area, the officers located a white male matching the suspect’s description along Tipton Street who was allegedly in possession of stolen merchandise,” said ISP Sgt. Stephen Wheeles. “The man fled from the officers on foot northbound across Tipton Street.”
Wheeles says the officers noticed the man was armed with a handgun and when he ran into a ditch by a nearby Taco Bell, the officers shot him.
“He was provided medical attention at the scene before being transported to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Indiana where he died as a result of the injuries,” he added. “No officers were injured in the incident.”
An autopsy is set for Tuesday.
