ISP investigating man's death

Sunday, July 1, 2012

GREENCASTLE --Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division Detectives from the Putnamville Post are investigating a police action shooting that resulted in the death of a Greencastle man.

Just after midnight Sunday, a 911 call was received reporting a physical domestic disturbance involving a male and female, which took place near 511 Sycamore St., Greencastle.

A unnamed Greencastle police officer arrived at the scene shortly thereafter and approached the male subject, who had allegedly been involved.

Upon the officer's approach to the male, the male purportedly charged at the officer, resulting in a physical confrontation.

The physical confrontation resulted in the police action shooting of the male, later identified as Charles Aaron Brousard, 28, Greencastle.

Putnam County EMS officials were summoned and arrived just after the incident where they found Greencastle Police performing life saving procedures on Brousard.

Brousard was pronounced dead at the scene by the Putnam County Coroner.

The investigation, according to officials, is ongoing.

Before someone tells us what a good family man this fellow was (and I am not saying he wasn't), let me say something. This was all preventable. The only thing the man had to do was STOP and OBEY a law enforcement officers' order. I'd lay odds there were drugs and/or alcohol involved. I'm praying for the police officer.

Lets pray for all involved ! I'd like to think that it could have been prevented by the individual following instructions of the officer also. But I'd rather Pray for all involved not just one.
