OHIO COUNTY, INDIANA — When one woman saw a conservation officer under attack by a man, she got her gun and shot the attacker once in the torso. First aid was administered by witnesses but he died at the hospital.
The conservation officer was involved in a fight with the man, according to a statement cited by Eagle Country News. The officer responded to the scene because of reports of suspicious activity and that stop escalated into a fight.
“At some point during their interaction, Holland began to resist the officer and became involved in a physical altercation with the officer. A female who was at a nearby residence responded to assist the officer who was being overtaken by Holland. At that time, the female fired one shot from a personally owned firearm at Holland, striking him in the torso,” explained Sgt. Stephen Wheeles.
From reports, it appears the man gained an upper hand in the physical altercation and the conversation officer was losing. If the woman had not intervened, the outcome for the officer would have likely been far worse.
Both the names of the officer and the woman who shot his attacker have been withheld pending the investigation.
