ISP: Deputy shot, killed driver after chase, pinning deputy up against police car

ISP says a Marshall County deputy shot a driver after the driver allegedly used their car to pin the deputy up against his police vehicle.

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. — Indiana State Police is investigating after they say a Marshall County deputy shot and killed a driver who led officers in a police chase, and then, used their car to pin the deputy up against his vehicle.

A police officer in Culver, Indiana, tried to pull over a suspected intoxicated driver on State Road 17 just before 2 p.m. on Sunday. The driver of the white Chevrolet passenger car didn't stop, and instead, led police in a chase through Marshall County. 

Eventually, the driver, later identified as 33-year-old Dylan Bush of Culver, Indiana, stopped in a business parking lot in the 1100 block of North Lake Shore Drive in Culver.  

A Marshall County deputy stopped his police vehicle in front of the Chevrolet and got out of it. That is when Bush allegedly drove forward, pinning the deputy between the Chevrolet and the police vehicle, according to ISP. 

The deputy pulled out his gun and shot at Bush several times. After being shot, Bush drove several hundred feet and crashed into an unoccupied car in a nearby parking lot. 

Medics pronounced Bush dead at the scene. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 30. 

ISP said the deputy was taken to a local hospital, where he was checked out and released. 

Investigators have not released any identifying information about the deputy.

Marshall County is roughly 120 miles north of downtown Indianapolis.
