Indiana deputy wounded in deadly gunfight is doing well but remains hospitalized

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana sheriff says a deputy wounded in a gunfight that killed another deputy remains hospitalized but is faring well.

Howard County Sheriff Steve Rogers said Monday that Sgt. Jordan Buckley “is doing very well” following Sunday’s shooting in a mobile home in Russiaville (ROO‘-shuh-vil), about 60 miles north of Indianapolis.

SWAT officers found the gunman dead inside the mobile home about two hours after the gunfight. Rogers identified the gunman as 25-year-old Evan T. Dorsey, who had served time in state prison on drug-related charges.

Rogers says the body of Deputy Carl Koontz would be returned Monday afternoon to Kokomo following a moment of silence at the department. Koontz, who was married and had a young child, died Sunday at an Indianapolis hospital hours after he was shot.
