One Dead, Two Injured in Kosciusko County Shooting

One man is dead, two others seriously injured after a shootout in Kosciusko County. 

Authorities say around 7 p.m. Monday night, bounty hunters were attempting to serve a warrant on 56-year-old Gary Helman at a home on Doswell Drive in Cromwell. That's when Helman and his twin twin brother Larry Helman exchanged gun fire with the men. 

The early investigation shows that shots were fired inside and outside. Gary Helman was killed inside the home. His brother Larry and one of the bounty hunters, Tad Martin of Osceola were found wounded outside. 

Both are being treated at Fort Wayne hospitals. The warrant for Helman is related to a failure to appear in Kosciusko County court for resisting law enforcement and battery.

Worries about job commitments and sliding stock prices are forcing The Indianapolis City-County Council to take some more time to think about a 18.5 million dollar incentive package. This is the second time the multimillion dollar tax break has been put on hold before it gets a full council vote. Angie's List announced that they would ask council for a tax break that would come from a tax increment financing ordinance if they could take over an old Ford assembly plant on a blighted portion on Indianapolis' east side. With the exception of a bright spot in 2013, Angie's List stock prices have slid downward since the company went public, recently hitting an all-time low of $4.59 per share at the end of January. The total number of jobs added as part of the incentive package is still somewhat unclear. As part of the TIF, Angie's List said they would add 13-hundred new jobs for a total of 28-hundred employees by the year 20-19. Indianapolis would then check the books in the form of a company provided semi-annual review of their job goals.
