MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is still sorting through the details of how a man was shot Monday night.
Ty Tribby says he and his father, Josh Tribby, were working in their barn when his father left to drop off a wagon at another barn. A gunshot rang through the air and a few minutes later, Ty saw his father rushing back toward the house on his tractor.
"We're still interviewing witnesses and family members," Montgomery County Sheriff Mark Casteel said. "We don't want to rule anything out until we've gathered the facts."
Casteel says Josh Tribby was airlifted to Saint Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis where he has been in the Intensive Care Unit. Casteel says they have not received any information of people shooting their guns around the area.
"We have had neighbors confirm that they have heard at least a gun shot," said Casteel.
"There's nothing in season, the only thing that's been in season in the past week is turkey, and it wasn't even a turkey shot," said Ty Tribby. "A turkey shot would have been a bunch of BBs, and this was one clean hole."
Tribby says his father's breathing tube was removed Wednesday and he's in and out of consciousness. However, he says he has been able to answer yes-or-no questions to nurses in the hospital about Monday. Casteel says they still need more information from Josh Tribby for the case to move forward.
"We need to sit down and go over exactly what he can tell us," Casteel said.
Sheriff Casteel asks anyone with information regarding the case to call the Sheriff's Office at either (765) 362-0885 or (765) 362-3740.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
