BROOKVILLE, Ind. -- A man has died after he was shot by Brookville police Wednesday morning, according to Indiana State Police. Donald Parker Jr., 29, would not drop his weapons and was shot as a result.
At 5:20 a.m. Wednesday, a woman called police and said her grandson -- Parker -- was acting strange. A deputy went to the home where Parker lived with his grandmother; Brookville police arrived as backup.
Indiana State Police, who are investigating the shooting, said Parker answered the door with a weapon, then came back with two weapons. He did not drop his weapons when police instructed him to do so, ISP said, and was shot by the Brookville officers.
"Franklin County-ISP Detectives on scene of officer-involved shooting on SR-101 in Brookville," Sgt. Stephen Wheeles from Versailles tweeted. "All officers OK. I am en-route to scene."
Franklin County-Suspect was shot by officers. Transported from scene for treatment. Condition unknown.
The shooting happened near the intersection of State Route 101 and Golden Road in Brookville, Indiana State Police said.
Parker has a criminal record with more than a dozen convictions, including one battery charge from December. In that case, police said Parker kicked a police officer in the groin. His pretrial hearing for the battery charge was scheduled for June 30; his trial was scheduled to begin in June.
The two officers involved in the shooting were placed on four-day paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure following an officer-involved shooting. One officer was wearing a body camera but did not activate it before the shooting, the Brookville Police Chief said. The chief said he couldn't remember the last officer-involved shooting in Brookville.
