ISP investigating the deaths of two people following a domestic dispute

GAS CITY — Indiana State police are investigating the deaths of two people Monday afternoon after they were involved in a domestic fight.

Around 4:30 p.m., Indiana State Police troopers responded to Gas City Town Hall to investigate the deaths of two people after a family member drove to the town hall looking for help, ISP Sgt. Tony Slocum said.

Troopers say 28-year-old Eric Huffman, and his wife, 43-year-old Telina Huffman, both of Marion, got into an argument while they were passengers in the car with a family member, Slocum said. During the argument, Eric pulled out a handgun and shot Telina.

The family member, who was driving the car, struggled with Eric to gain control of the handgun, causing the driver to crash the car into a parked semi-trailer at a business on East First Street in Gas City, Sgt. Slocum said. At that time, Eric gained control of the gun and allegedly shot himself, where he died.

Because the family member was unable to exit the car, he drove to the town hall and honked his horn until town hall employees came outside, Slocum said.

The occupants of the car were removed by Gas City Fire Department firefighters.

The incident is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call ISP Det. Mike Lorona at 765-473-6666.
