LADOGA, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a person has been shot and wounded after firing a gun at a SWAT team that was trying to serve a felony warrant in western Indiana.

State police say the Montgomery County multi-jurisdictional SWAT team went to a home outside the Montgomery County town of Ladoga about 10 p.m. Wednesday to execute the warrant and 39-year-old Matthew G. Olsen opened fire. Officers returned fire, and Olsen was taken to an Indianapolis hospital in serious condition.

No officers were injured in the exchange of gunfire about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Indianapolis.

The Montgomery County sheriff’s office asked state police to investigate the shooting. Prosecutors will then review the case. Additional details weren’t immediately released.
