WATERLOO, Ind. — One suspect was killed and another wounded hours after a police officer was shot in the face Thursday.
The two suspects were believed to be connected to the shooting of a Waterloo officer, sources said. Police located them after issuing a call for help from the public and receiving a call from the homeowner that people were hiding under the deck.
When they arrived police attempted to get the suspects to come out — deploying a TASER in the process — when a male pointed a gun at an officer, the News Sentinel reported. Officers opened fire and the male suspect, identified as Ralph Daniel Hardiek, 41, died.
The officer was identified as 13-year police veteran Deputy Marshal Stephen Brady, 47, according to WANE. Brady is in serious condition at Fort Wayne Hospital.
