JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The 911 tapes released late Wednesday, June 26, may give insight into what led up to Monday’s 10 hour police standoff in Sellerburg that left an officer shot and a K-9 officer dead.
In the tapes the wife of shooting suspect Josh Priddy tells dispatchers her husband began to show signs of mental illness four years ago. She said he believed the world was coming to an end, and that he was preventing his family from leaving their home because he thought they'd die if they went outside.
Priddy appeared in court for the first time Wednesday morning. He now faces 18 counts of seven different felonies including attempted murder for the standoff where he's accused of breaking into homes, shooting at officers injuring a Clark County Sheriff's deputy and killing an Indiana State Police K-9.
A judge set Priddy's bail at $500,000 cash. The sheriff’s deputy he shot in the leg has been released from the hospital.
