One person was shot in this residence at 8019 N. C.R. 400E, north of Wesley Chapel.

Around 4:22 p.m. Tuesday, the Clay County Sheriff's Department responded to a 911 call reporting a shooting at a home just north of Wesley Chapel at 8019 N. County Road 400 E.

Officer Jon Lambert, first on the scene at the residence, discovered Douglas Fulk Jr., 35, had a broken leg. Authorities determined the femur was broken by a rifle shot.

Jamie Gillan, who was living at the residence with his girlfriend Shelby Maurer, reported that he had shot Fulk in self defense.

Fulk was transported by ambulance to St. Vincent Clay Hospital and then by Air Evac to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Fulk's injuries were not life threatening and as of press time he remained in the hospital.

Fulk and his girlfriend, Sarah Marie Maurer, 22, were visiting Gillan and Maurer at the time of the incident and had reportedly been in several disputes with each other throughout the day at the home.

During the investigation it was discovered that there was an outstanding warrant against Fulk for Failure to Appear on charges of serious bodily injury, and that Sarah Marie Maurer had an outstanding warrant against her for Petition to Revoke Probation. She was taken into custody by the Clay County Sheriff's Department.

The ongoing investigation will continue as officers interview people who were at the residence Tuesday afternoon before the shooting, Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton said.

Indiana State Police officers and Carbon and Knightsville Town Marshals also responded to the scene.
