A 58 year old Warsaw man is being held in the Benton County Jail after allegedly shooting his wife and attempting to shoot officers. According to Sheriff Rick Fajen, Wednesday morning the Sheriff’s office was called to the report of an accidental shooting in rural western Benton County. Deputies arrived on scene and instructed the man to come out of his home so they could go inside and see the woman. The suspect shut the door on officers then returned with an assault rifle aimed at the deputies. The suspect apparently fired several rounds towards the deputies which started a stand off with police. Officers from the Highway Patrol and the Warsaw Police Department joined in the stand off which lasted more than 3 hours with the man still shooting at the officers. When the suspect surrendered, officers were able to enter the residence and found numerous weapons and ammunition. The suspect’s 63 year old wife was treated for gunshot wounds at the scene and taken by helicopter to an area hospital.
