June 29, 2012

A longtime public works employee in the Hendricks County town of Danville is in stable condition after authorities said he shot himself in the chest early Friday morning. Danville police responded to a home in the 200 block of North Washington Street at about 3:30 a.m. after receiving a domestic disturbance call. They found the man in an agitated condition and were unable to calm him down. The man, who was not identified, ran to his truck, got a gun and began to wave it in the air, police said. Officers unsuccessfully deployed a Taser before the man shot himself. He is listed in stable condition after surgery and is expected to recover.
