EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office identified the man killed during a deputy involved shooting that took place on St. Joe Road on Wednesday.

On Thursday, the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office identified the suspect as Steven Goldstein, 49. According to the sheriff’s office, deputies received a warrant after watching a video of the suspect shooting a gun near a juvenile.

When the Vanderburgh County deputies and the U.S. Marshall Task Force arrived, Goldstein refused to exit his mobile home. Another person who also lived in the trailer alerted authorities when he exited the mobile home that Goldstein was armed with a 9mm handgun.

“This was an individual who clearly made the decision that he was not going to go back to prison and we’re willing to shoot at us to make that point,” Vanderburgh County Sheriff Noah Robinson stated.” In fact when the individual who was inside that trailer initially and surrendered to us to get out of there, he told us in fact that Mr. Goldstein was not going to surrender.”

Goldstein fired shots out of the side of the trailer according to Sheriff Robinson, which prompted them to use gas rounds.

They then used a BearCat (armored vehicle) to create an opening the trailer. Deputies then started pulling apart the trailer the suspect was inside, as reported by the sheriff’s office. That’s when the suspect allegedly started shooting at the law enforcement officials. We’re told deputies returned fire, shooting the suspect.

The deputy who was said to have stuck Goldstein was placed on administrative leave as is the sheriff’s office policy to do so after a deputy involved shooting.

“We’ve requested the Indiana state police one of our officer involved shootings. something we started towards the very beginning of the year,” Sheriff Robinson said. “Reached an agreement with ISP that anytime we have a loss of life as a result of one of our deputies or one of our confinement officers or someone dies in our custody we want the Indiana state police or an outside agency to investigate,” he added.
