Around 4 a.m. on Wednesday, officers with Indiana State Police executed two search warrants, one on a residence on Oard Springs Road.

Matthew Murdock, 31 of Austin, was also arrested at the scene for possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia.

The search warrants are the result of a shooting investigation that began in Jackson County, Ind.
