BICKNELL, Ind. - Police say a man was fatally shot during an argument in a southwestern Indiana town and that the suspected gunman later killed himself while officers were pursuing him.
State police Sgt. Todd Ringle says Todd Godare, 48, of Bicknell, is suspected of fatally shooting Paul Ryan Russell, 33, of Bruceville.
Russell was shot about 2 a.m. Wednesday in the Knox County town of Bicknell. That shooting happened outside a home where neither the victim nor the suspected shooter lived.
Ringle says Godare drove away in a pickup truck that was spotted a couple hours later by police officers in the nearby city of Vincennes.
Police tried to stop the truck, but Godare continued driving for a few minutes before stopping and shooting himself with a handgun.
