MARION, Ind. (WFFT) – A man was shot and killed Sunday evening after investigators say he tried to run over an officer who was responding to a possible stabbing at a Grant County home.
Indiana State Police detectives say that at about 6:10 p.m. Sunday, deputies from the Grant County Sheriff’s Department were responding to a domestic situation involving a possible stabbing at a home in the 3200 block of South Central Avenue in Marion.
When the first Grant County deputy arrived at the home, ISP says he got out of his police car and began "to walk up a long driveway leading to the home."
Investigators say 25-year-old Daniel Young of Marion allegedly drove a Honda Civic toward the deputy causing him to jump on the hood of the moving car.
They say Young did not stop and continued driving with the deputy on the hood.
Investigators say the deputy allegedly shot Young several times through the car's windshield then shortly after the car came to a stop.
Officers say Young was to Marion General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Grant County deputy was not injured.
Deputies say the man inside the house, identified as 53-year-old Jonathan Loudy of Marion, was reportedly stabbed with a knife by Young.
Loudy was initially transported to Marion General Hospital and then transported, via ambulance, to a Fort Wayne Hospital to be treated for his multiple stab wounds.
This incident remains under investigation by police.
