An Indiana police officer was shot and killed after reporting to a domestic dispute at Perry County Memorial Hospital on July 3. 

According to, 14 News, a woman arrived at the hospital with injuries sustained during a domestic dispute and spoke with Sgt. Heather Glenn about the incident. Glenn reportedly left the scene, but returned once word spread that suspect Sean Hubert was on his way to the hospital. 

Glenn attempted to arrest Hubert when he arrived at the hospital, but he was uncooperative. 14 News reports that Sgt. Glenn attempted to tase Hubert which prompted him to pull out a gun. Hubert shot Glenn in the struggle. Other officers on the scene then fatally shot Hubert. 

Sgt. Glenn was a 20-year veteran of the local police department.  

"On behalf of all of Perry County Memorial Hospital, we thank the officers who responded to our call this morning, and join the community in grieving the loss of Officer Glenn," said Jared Stimpson, CEO of Perry County Memorial Hospital, in a July 3 Facebook post. "We are grateful to all members of law enforcement who bravely put their lives at risk to protect patients and employees of hospitals." 

The hospital temporarily suspended services after the shooting. The hospital resumed full operations on July 5.
