Suspect Killed During Officer Involved Shooting in Vincennes

UPDATE: The ISP has released the names of the troopers involved in the shooting incident Tuesday night in Vincennes.

Master Trooper Shaun Hannon, Trooper Korey Mauck, and Trooper Justin Bean were the three officers involved.

The suspect in last night's officer involved shooting incident has been identified as David Zimmerman, 35, of Princeton.

A felony parole warrant for manslaughter had been issued for Zimmerman's arrest earlier this month out of Gibson County.

Tuesday evening, Indiana State Police had received information that Zimmerman was possibly in the area of a Chuckles gas station on Old Decker Road in Vincennes.

Just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, troopers spotted Zimmerman's Dodge Ram pick-up truck at Chuckles, and authorities in unmarked vehicles pulled in behind his truck.

The suspect placed his vehicle in reverse, striking the front of one of the unmarked vehicles. 

Troopers opened fire when Zimmerman reached for a weapon.

Zimmerman was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

A search of the vehicle revealed a handgun.
