WABASH COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - The Wabash County Prosecutor said officers were justified in shooting and killing a Kokomo man February 14.

The incident happened February 14 around 4:11 p.m. on Wabash County Road 400 North between CR 400 E and CR 500 E.

The prosecutors office said Travis Tucker, 29, was the suspect in a burglary that took place that afternoon near Andrews in Huntington County.

Wabash and Huntington County sheriff deputies were responding to the area on a tip.

When deputies were trying to arrest Tucker, he attempted to run over them.

That's when deputies shot at Tucker, killing him.

An autopsy reviled Tucker had several drugs in his system.
