Indiana State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened early Sunday morning in Waynetown. According to a release Sunday from Montgomery County Sheriff Mark Casteel, a deputy was involved in a shooting shortly before 2:30 a.m. Sunday in Waynetown.
According to Indiana State Police, police responded to an alleged drunk and disorderly male at a home in Waynetown at approximately 1:58 a.m. on Sunday. According to multiple reports, the man was taken to Franciscan Health Crawfordsville and later flown to IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. 
State Police spokesman Sgt. Kim Riley told our news gathering partner, WTHR, that the man threatened deputies with a gun when they responded to a call for a disorderly person at a home.
"At this point in time, there were people apparently on the street other than the officers," said Riley. "There were apparently locals that had come out to see what the commotion was. Their lives and the lives of the officers were apparently threatened with this subject because he allegedly pointed the gun in the direction of the officers, possibly other people and an officer made the decision that it was time to stop the aggression. Whenever somebody is threatening a law enforcement officer or somebody that we are sworn to protect, we have to take whatever action necessary."
According to WTHR, Major Ryan Needham of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said no deputies were injured. Police say no one else was hurt either.
Question of the Week:

The League of Women Voters typically has a debate or candidate forum each election. The Paper of Montgomery County has also sponsored a more traditional debate on occasion. This year, there was a report that some Republican Party candidates were not going to attend the League’s event that is slated for Thursday, although it now appears they will. The question this week is are local debates worthwhile?
