A man is dead following a shootout with Johnson County Sheriff's deputies Wednesday afternoon in a cemetery east of Franklin after deputies said the man aimed a gun at them.
Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox told the "Daily Journal" the suspect was warned to stop but pointed a gun at the deputies. It's unclear who fired first.
Deputies involved in the shooting were not hurt. The shooting took place in the 1500 block of North 800 East near the Second Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.
Cox says Indiana State Police is investigating the shooting, and four witnesses who live nearby have verified the deputies' account of what happened.
