Indiana State Police Investigating Police Action Shooting In Boonville

Warrick County - The suspect involved in this morning’s police action shooting has been identified as Marshall Coleman, 58, of Boonville.

According to state police detectives, the 911 call reporting a male with two knives threatening people at Governor Boon Square Apartments came from Coleman’s cell phone.
