Entry Description

Fulton-At approximately 8:14 p.m, the Indiana State Police along with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department, the Fulton Town Marshal, the Kewana Town Marshal and the Rochester Police Department responded to a domestic situation with shots fired.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that officers responded to 307 West Brown Street in Fulton reference a domestic situation with shots being fired. As officers arrived at the residence, Nicholas S. Westerhoff, 46 years old, Fulton, IN, was inside refusing to give himself up. A perimeter was set up around the residence as officers continued to arrive. Indiana State Police North Emergency Response Team was activated and assisted in securing a perimeter around the residence.

Negotiations with Westerhoff were tried several times but were unsuccessful. At one point, officers heard several shots being fired from inside the residence. At approximately 11:40 p.m, Westerhoff came to the door of the residence and started firing his weapon. To minimize the threat, officers returned fire and Westerhoff was injured during the exchange. It is unknown at this time if Westerhoff’s injury was self inflicted or by officers returning fire. Westerhoff was air lifted to Parkview Hospital in Ft. Wayne in serious condition. No officers were injured during the standoff. The investigation is continuing.

The next update will come sometime next week after the Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Division at the Peru Post have collected all evidence and reports and submitted them to the Fulton County Prosecutor's office for review.

Other departments assisting were the Liberty Township Fire Department and the Fulton County EMS.

Suspects are innocent until and when proven guilty in a court of law.
