EVANSVILLE, Ind. - A man wanted for dealing meth reportedly opened fire near authorities before surrendering to arrest this week in southwest Indiana.
Indiana State Police (ISP) said just before 9 p.m. Monday, officers with the U.S. Marshals Service, ISP and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office headed to a home in the 11300 block of Lower Mt. Vernon Road in Evansville (see map below) to serve a federal arrest warrant on Travis Adams, 32.
Adams was recently indicted for conspiracy to deal methamphetamine, ISP said.
Officers said when they arrived at his home, Adams was standing outside with his wife. ISP said he quickly ran inside when he saw authorities arriving, and fired at least one shot.
Authorities surrounded the home and called for backup from ISP's Emergency Response Team.
After getting on the phone with Adams, ISP said within 15 minutes, he surrendered. He was booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail.
Investigators said they found a .38 special revolver from inside the home.
No responding officers were hurt by the gunfire.
