Death of Linton Man Ruled Suicide

The Greene County Coroner has ruled the death of a Linton man one week ago a suicide. 

Indiana State and Linton Police and deputies from the Greene County Sheriff’s Department were called to 420 "J" Street Southwest to investigate a report of a suicidal man.

48 year-old James Jarman was found on the back porch with a handgun.

Jarman refused police orders to put the gun down.

During negotiations, a conflict ensued and shots were fired. 

Jarman was pronounced dead at the scene.
