LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette police Specialist Ian O'Shields is on paid administrative leave while officers review the shooting of a man during a SWAT situation Monday. The O'Shields' leave is customary while the department reviews the situation.
Lafayette police went to the home of Dustin Borders (pictured) on Derbyshire Court, around 1 p.m. to serve a warrant for resisting law enforcement with a vehicle.
As News 18 reported, the SWAT team breached the apartment on the outskirts of West Lafayette after more than 10 negotiation attempts with Borders broke down.
Lafayette police said they found him holding a knife to a woman's throat. SWAT officers said they overheard Borders saying he was going to kill himself, officers and 26-year-old Morgan Edmondson. Borders was then shot in the hip by O'Shields, according to officers.
Borders was taken into custody without injuries to anyone else.
