Woman murdered in Lizton area

LIZTON — The Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a murder and what is believed to be a suicide attempt after receiving a 911 call Monday night.

As of press time, authorities had not yet released the names of the victim, the alleged shooter, or the witness who made the 911 call.

The caller informed dispatchers of a potential shooting in the 8200 block of County Road 400 West, which is west of Lizton. When emergency crews arrived, they found two people with gunshot wounds.

Police say the husband and wife at that residence were drinking alcohol with a friend behind the home when they began to argue.

“There was a gentleman who rents the place out back,” Lt. Jim Yetter of the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department said. “He’s an employee of the suspect, and he told us that the three of them were out where he rents, behind the residence, having some drinks. The male suspect was intoxicated and an argument ensued. At some point, they both left the back building and the witness heard one shot, went to see what was going on, and saw the victim lying on the sidewalk.”

Yetter said the witness told authorities that when he went to investigate, he saw the woman lying on the sidewalk near the house and the man walking around the area. At that point, he said, he fled and then heard at least two more shots.

Yetter said both the woman and the man were found outside of the residence.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The man, who sustained what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the lower face, was taken to St. Vincent Medical Center in Indianapolis and was reported to be in serious condition.

Yetter said that the last he had heard, the suspect is expected to survive.
