Shooting still under investigation

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

POLAND -- Officials believe they are close to concluding a shooting investigation, which began Sunday.

According to Clay County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Rob Gambill, the department has conducted approximately "a dozen" interviews throughout the course of the investigation.

"Basically, each story was different," Gambill told The Brazil Times. "But we pretty much got things sorted out. I think we've got it."

According to officials, no one has been arrested at this point and no charges have been filed.

The investigation surrounds a shooting incident that took place Sunday evening near Poland.

According to reports, deputies were dispatched at approximately 6:30 p.m., to a residence off Private Road 375 N., near County Road 700 E.

According to information provided by authorities, shots were fired at a vehicle after some sort of altercation.

The altercation took place between parties, all of whom live on the road.

A male shooting victim was initially taken to St. Vincent Clay Hospital and later to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.

Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times it was believed the man suffered gunshot wounds to the facial area, but added the injuries were not life threatening.

In addition, Heaton said another person involved in the altercation, a woman, was later hospitalized at St. Vincent Clay for "non-related health issues."

Names of both victims were withheld pending the ongoing investigation.

On Tuesday, Gambill said the department expected to have the investigation concluded within 24 hours and hoped to have a report to deliver to Clay County Prosecutor Lee Reberger.

Praying this situation is not what the quaint town of Poland is remembered for...many people here are law abiding citizens who have a long linegage of family in this area and cause no problems for law enforcement......those days are slowly disappearing though...and it is truly sad.

The only reason anyone would remember the town of Poland is because those pesky Germans' invaded it in Sep of '39.

"people here are law abiding citizens who have a long linegage of family in this area and cause no problems for law enforcement"

Of course they cause no problems for law enforcement, they have no phones in Poland to call anyone! (Banjo music whistles sofly through the cornfield).
