FORTVILLE — Police were dispatched to a residence after reports of gunshots and a possible hostage situation on Tuesday, May 29, at the 9300 block of N. Bayfield Drive in McCordsville.
Early reports indicated that a man had taken himself and three children hostage. The Hancock County Joint Task Team was prepping to travel in from Greenfield. Before they were dispatched, a request was put in for a hostage negotiator, but their calls to traditional sources turned back no results.
That’s where Fortville police officer Shawn Neal Brady came in.
