Additional Details Released in Brown Co. Police Action Shooting

Indiana State police say a Nashville, Indiana man fatally shot by Brown County Sheriff's deputies last week asked them to kill him and pointed a gun at them following a chase.

Police say that when deputies arrived at a Nashville home Thursday to arrest 44-year-old Troy Harden on two probation violation warrants, he told them to kill him.

When a deputy pulled out a stun gun, Harden escaped through a window.
Following a chase, Harden was stunned and fell to the ground.

However, police say they shot him twice when he allegedly pointed a handgun at them.

Witnesses told detectives Harden was aware of the arrest warrants and feared gong to prison.

Police say investigators also found meth lab components in Harden's truck.
Harden was serving probation for his role in the 2007 killings of two men.
