ISP Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting in Terre Haute

-
Indiana State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Terre Haute where one man is dead.

Authorities had a warrant out for the arrest of a suspect charged with rape, criminal confinement, and domestic battery. Officers said they located the man around 5:30 EST, and he drove off in his vehicle. After a chase, authorities were able to box in the vehicle to get him to stop.

Officers broke the side windows of the vehicle and used a Taser, but they say it had apparently no effect on the suspect. Police say the suspect then made an "aggressive threatening move" with his hands inside the car, causing a police officer to shoot him in the right torso area.

Officers rushed the suspect to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The name of the suspect is not being released at this time. An autopsy will be conducted, and ISP says the investigation could take two or three weeks. 

ISP reports the name of the Terre Haute Police officer who fired the shot will be released at a later time.
