Goshen police chase ends with shots fired, one dead

One man is dead and another has been injured in a police-action shooting in Goshen. Indiana State Police Sgt. Trent Smith says a Goshen police officer fatally shot a carjacking suspect brandishing a shotgun in the parking lot of a bar Wednesday morning.

The man’s name has not released. Smith says a man sitting in a nearby van was struck by a stray bullet and hospitalized, but it’s not clear who fired that bullet. No police officers were injured.

Goshen police responding to a call of gunshots were told by witnesses the man unsuccessfully attempted two carjackings near the intersection of US 33 and Kercher Road. A short police chase ensued before the shooting.

The Goshen Police Department says all officers who fired their weapons have been put on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues.
