The suspect, who had fired shots at police officers and then barricaded himself in, came out of the house and was arrested.

A town marshal and a state police officer arrived on the scene and a man came out of the house and fired shots at their cars. Both of the officers were wounded, but not severely.

The man then went back into the house and barricaded himself inside.

Several police departments, including the Parke County Sheriff's office, State Police and Rosedale Police departments are currently on the scene.
