SYRACUSE, Ind. (WOWO): The Indiana State Police is investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened while Kosciusko County deputies were serving an arrest warrant.

Members of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team were helping Syracuse Police serve a warrant Friday afternoon at around 4:40 at a home in the 500 block of N. Huntington Street. That’s when deputies say Dale Harner, 27, started to pull a gun as officers entered the house. One of the SWAT team members, Travis Shively, fired multiple rounds at Harner, but he was not shot. Police K-9 Neville then bit Harner twice.

Harner was arrested and then transported to Kosciusko Community Hospital for treatment of bite wounds.

He is now held in the Kosciusko County Jail on a Wabash County warrant for possession of methamphetamine and faces charges of resisting arrest and intimidation.

The Kosciusko County prosecutor is reviewing the case.
