Man Accused of Shooting Deputy Out of Hospital, In Jail

Anthony Baumgardt now faces a murder charge.

LEBANON, Ind. --The man that State Police Superintendent Doug Carter identified as "the shooter",  who is accused of shooting Deputy Jacob Pickett, has been released from the hospital and booked into the Boone County Jail.


Anthony Louis Baumgardt was booked into the jail by Sheriff Mike Nielsen, and charged with murder, resisting, carrying a gun without a license, possession of meth and possession of marijuana, said Boone Co. Deputy Ken Conley.


Baumgardt was wanted for failure to appear in court in Marion County, when he shot Pickett in the head during a chase at a Lebanon apartment complex Friday morning about 9:40, said State Police, who are now leading the investigation.


Another deputy shot Baumgardt after he shot Pickett. 


Baumgardt had a history of arrests, mostly on drug charges.


Nielsen said Saturday evening that Pickett's request to donate his organs takes time and he is being kept on life support for that purpose. 


His arrangements are still being planned.
