UPDATE: Shooting suspect surrenders to authorities

Thursday, September 10, 2009

At about 12:15 p.m., today, a male suspect who allegedly shot another man and held a woman hostage for approximately two hours has surrendered to area law enforcement.

Due to the current investigation, details are limited this time.

According to officials, at approximately 8:30 a.m., Matthew Alan Aubrey, 25, entered the residence at 1976 North County Road 350 East, and found his estranged wife Jayme Aubrey with another man, Frank Ford, 34, Terre Haute.

Allegedly, an altercation between the two men occurred in which the Aubrey shot Ford three times. Ford then ran to a neighboring home where 911 was called, and was later transported by AirEvac to Wishard Hospital, Indianapolis, and is believed to be in stable condition.

Aubrey then proceeded to keep Jayme barricaded in the residence for approximately two hours, until releasing her at about 10:30 a.m., with no injuries. Aubrey remained in the residence while members of the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team negotiated an end to the situation.

According to ISP Public Information Officer Joe Watts, also assisting on the scene were members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police -- Terre Haute Division, Clay County Emergency Management Agency, Jackson and Center Point Volunteer Fire Departments, TransCare and AirEvac.

This story will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.

This is a sad situtation. Matt and Jayme are both good people. I hate it that this has happened but I really feel sorry for the children.

the news and the paper made it sound like matt came home from work and found his wife in bed with another man . not the case at all ,matt was an abuser to his wife ,to his step children and his own child .he cheated on his wife several times any one who knows him knows this about him.he is the one who wanted to split up , he is the one who told her to move on, and when she finely gave up on matt and did move on . after being apart from matt for months he didnt like it ,he broke into her house spilt pop & food all over everything took a magic marker and wrote filthy words all over all her cloths ,broke up every thing in her house ,crashes his car into hers with the kids in the car.she called the law every time he did something wrong but they just kept telling her they could do nothing becouse she was still married to him. so any way i just wanted to let every one know she filed for divorce and had not been with matt for months,he broke in her house and shot her new boy friend once , the man tried to run and matt shot him two more times in the back while trying to get away .he also shot at jayme and missed thank god or the kids might be with out a mother and father.so who ever thinks matt is such a good person ,,,you just have no idea...and no idea what her and those children have been through.thank god he's in jail ,,,i hope they put him under the jail,,,i am a grand parent of two of those children

Go figure! in this county I am not surprised at the fact that she had made police reports and that she had a PO and they caught him at her house. But yet did nothing. You can bet one thing if he had been under the influence of alcohol or some drugs they would have cuffed and stuffed him. It's unfortunate that someoone had to be hurt before they incarcerated this man. But that is the way the system works in Clay Co., you can attempt or actually murder someone and get by with it for awhile. But if you have an addiction problem they will immediately throw the book at you and you will rot in jail!

I have read this article and the comments of others. It is too bad that there is someone that seems to know everything but just as the commenter stated about the Police officials, that individual seems to have done nothing to help either person or the children either.

Maybe with all of the information that has been spurted out in you comment, you should have also made reports to the Police or a crisis intervention official and you too may have been able to prevent such a sad situation.
