LAGODA, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a person has been shot and wounded after firing a gun at a SWAT team that was trying to serve a felony warrant in Indiana.

State police say the Montgomery County multi-jurisdictional SWAT team went to a home near the Montgomery County community of Ladoga about 10 p.m. Wednesday to execute the warrant and the person opened fire. They fired back and the person was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

No officers were injured in the exchange of gunfire about 35 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
