A mid-afternoon shooting near Ball State University’s campus has killed an unidentified man and wounded two Muncie Police Department officers. While serving an arrest warrant, Officers Steve Baugh and Brent Brown suffered superficial wounds when the suspect began shooting at them. Ball State Senior Britny Hinsberger lives on the corner of Dicks and University streets, with a view of the Village Pantry parking lot.
Delaware County Coroner Steve Hahn has confirmed that the suspect was killed when police returned fire. According to the Star Press, he was believed to be involved in a recent robbery. Ball State’s Public Safety Notice system sent a message to campus emails just before 3 PM. It gave basic details about the shooting and said, “At no time was there a threat to the university community.”
