A LaGrange man was arrested after police say he tried to kill someone.

Brian C. Combs, 33, was arrested on a preliminary charge of attempted murder,according to the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department.

At about 6:35 p.m. Sunday, crews were called to South 200 East near East 100 South on reports of a battery complaint. When officers arrived, they found a badly beaten unresponsive man on the property, according to our reporting partners at WOWO.

Police believe Combs beat a 33-year-old Angola man. The victim was flown to a Fort Wayne hospital for multiple severe injuries, according to police.

The incident is under investigation.


  1. He wasn’t initially trying to kill the guy. It was a fight that got out of hand. Sometimes people get emotionally over heated in midst of a fight and things do happen and do get out of hand. He’s not typically the sort of guy to just kill someone.

      • He walked into his home and found his woman with another man…in his bedroom no less. Yes he beat that guy 3 different times..and ultimately killed the guy and he will go to prison for it. I had the same thing happen to me 10 years ago. I am not condoning what he did….but i challenge everyone. If you walked into your home to that situation do you know what you would do? No you don’t…pray you never find out
