(HUNTINGBURG) - A police-action shooting at Huntingburg City Park sent one victim to the hospital this afternoon.

According to an Indiana State Police report, officers with the Huntingburg Police Department received a message at 2 p.m. through social media from a male requesting they meet at League Stadium League Stadium on the south side of town.

Concerned by the nature of the message, and knowing that the Department had been to recent calls for service with this person, the officer requested that a supervisor go with him to meet him.

After arriving in a parking lot on the east side of League Stadium, officers found the male standing in the middle of the parking lot, holding what appeared to be a revolver.

Multiple commands were given by officers for the male to place the weapon on the ground - he refused to do. The male then raised the gun, pointing it directly at an officer.

Two officers fired on the subject, striking him multiple times.

Officers immediately requested emergency medical services to tend to the male. He was transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper and was transferred to St. Mary's in Evansville, where he remains in serious condition.

Officers on scene were unharmed.

This incident remains under investigation by the Indiana State Police. Names of those involved will be released later pending family notification.
