ISP investigating officer involved shooting in La Grange Co.

Indiana State Police were called in to investigate an officer involved shooting that happened Tuesday afternoon after a vehicle pursuit.

ISP said the vehicle pursuit originated in Middlebury Tuesday afternoon.

Around 3:30 p.m., the 1997 Chevy van, driven by 23-year-old Cesar Felipe Jaramillo-Moreno of Goshen, was traveling east on CR600S, just outside Topeka at a high rate of speed.

La Grange Police officers deployed stop sticks in an attempt to slow the vehicle.

ISP said a La Grange officer fearing for his safety, fired multiple shots at the van.

The van struck a fence and came to a stop.

Jaramillo-Moreno was not shot and was taken into custody after a taser was deployed.

Jaramillo-Moreno was taken to the hospital. Once he was released he was taken to the La Grange County Jail.

No officers were injured in the incident.

ISP is withholding the name of the officer involved.
