Update published at 8:52 p.m.:

The standoff stemming from an officer-involved shooting in Aurora has been peacefully resolved, says Indiana State Police Sgt. Stephen Wheeles.

One suspect was taking into custody at around 7:26 p.m., said Wheeles, the public information officer for the state police’s Versailles district.

The situation ended more than six hours after two officers responded to a home on the 5700 block of Dutch Hollow Road near the Aurora Fire Department at around 1:14 p.m. Friday. Investigators said that as the officers approached the home, somebody fired shots from the residence.

Neither of the officers were injured.

The suspect’s name has not been released. Wheeles said more information could be released later Friday night.

(Aurora, Ind.) – An officer-involved shooting took place Friday afternoon in southern Dearborn County.

The incident took place on Dutch Hollow Road near U.S. 50 in Aurora. Indiana State Police said shots were fired at an officer.

A suspect was reportedly barricaded in a home following the shooting. No injuries have been reported at this time.

Officers were dispatched to a welfare check at a home on the 5700 block of Dutch Hollow Road at around 1:14 p.m. It is unclear if that call is related to the standoff situation.

Parents of South Dearborn Community Schools students living along that road have been told their school bus will not run that route this afternoon and have been asked to pick up their children at school.
