An investigation, the sheriff’s office said, determined Chastain was armed when he drove through the yard where he was found shot, grabbed the homeowner and pointed a gun to the man’s head, forcing him to get down on the ground.

Police said the homeowner’s wife witnessed the incident and used a handgun to shoot Chastain.


Citing Indiana State Police, WDRB reported Chastain had dated the victim’s daughter but investigators were trying to determine what led up to the incident since the daughter no longer lived with her parents.

The investigation is ongoing.
