Indiana State Police shoot, kill suspect in Vincennes Tuesday

A Princeton, Indiana man has died after Indiana State Police shot him outside a Vincennes gas station.  35 year old David Zimmerman has been identified as the victim.  He was wanted on a warrant for a felony parole violation on a manslaughter charge issued earlier this month in Gibson County.

According to the preliminary report, Zimmerman was spotted at the Chuckles in Vincennes just before 9 pm.  Troopers in unmarked vehicles tried to block in Zimmerman’s vehicle, and the suspect crashed into one of the police vehicles.  Troopers opened fire as Zimmerman reached for a weapon.  He was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital, where he died of his injuries. A search of Zimmerman’s truck revealed a handgun.

The investigation is on-going.
