A.J. Kelton one of the witnesses says, "Looked outside and saw the state troopers lined from here all around. They blocked off the street, looked out and saw one Indiana State Trooper armed with an assault rifle, which makes my morning interesting."
From there, Kelton says a gun fight ensued.
"What to me I could only describe as basically a gun battle. A couple of shots returned by several more."
That gun battle was also heard by Tammy Beechler.
She knows the house well. She used to live here and even built the deck the two suspects hid under. The deck where gun battle took place.
"There's no way that they could have got all the way into that,” says Beechler, “because the kids would lose toys and stuff down in there. There was no way, so they had to be on the outside."
"I heard police say, 'Show us your hands. Come out with your hands up,'" said Melvin Miller, 69, who lives next door to where the man and woman were found hiding under a deck. "My brother-in-law said he heard someone say, 'He's got a gun.' That's when I heard all the firing going on."
Miller estimated a dozen officers were in the yard at the time.
