On Friday, officials with the Brazil Police Department issued an update regarding the shooting death of a Brazil man.
On Tuesday, at approximately 6:30 a.m., police were notified of a 911 call of a shooting that had taken place at 305 S. Vine St., Brazil.
According to police officials, a female caller told 911 Dispatch that someone had been shot and an ambulance was needed.
Officers with the Brazil Police Department and Clay County Sheriff's Department responded to the call.
Upon arrival, Duston Fontanyi, 26, Brazil, met the officers and allegedly said he was the shooter.
According to officials, Fontanyi immediately began cooperating with investigators.
Officers also discovered Bryan Owens, 33, also of Brazil, at the housing unit at 307 S. Vine St., with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Officers treated Owens until medics from TransCare arrived to the scene.
TransCare personnel began treatment at the scene before transporting Owens to St. Vincent Clay Hospital.
AirEvac then transported Owens from St. Vincent to Indianapolis for further treatment.
However, shortly after takeoff, Owens allegedly went into cardiac arrest. AirEvac returned to St. Vincent, where Owens was pronounced dead.
Fontanyi and a female witness were taken to the Clay County Justice Center for further questioning.
Through the course of the investigation, officials learned that Fontanyi permitted Owens into his residence. An argument then ensued.
When Owens allegedly refused to leave, a physical altercation between Fontanyi and Owens allegedly took place, which culminated in the shooting.
Fontanyi and the female witness were released after being interviewed.
The Clay County Coroner's office ordered an autopsy, which was performed Nov. 12, at Regional Hospital, Terre Haute, by Forensic Pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr.
Dr. Kohr listed the cause of death as gunshot wound to the chest.
According to officials with the police department, the investigation is ongoing and a completed report will be turned over to the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for review.
