Indiana State Police Conducting Death Investigation in Scott County

Scott Villa Mobile Home Trailer Park

Shortly after Midnight on Sunday, the Scottsburg Police Department requested assistance from the Indiana State Police on what was described as a "shots fired" call with one subject possibly shot and deceased at Lot 21 of the Scott Villa Mobile Home Trailer Park located at 815 West Lake Road in Scottsburg. 

The preliminary investigation reveals that at approximately 11:55p on April 13th, Scottsburg City Police were dispatched to the location after receiving a telephone call from neighbors advising of a disturbance with possible shots fired.  Officers were also informed of a potential gunshot victim.  Just before Midnight, a second call was placed to Scott County authorities.  The caller, Michael Brandon Jones, 29, advised he was the home-owner at Lot 21 and that he had just shot a man who he stated was trying to gain entry into his residence. 

Multiple ISP units arrived to assist and were informed by Scottsburg Police that an unidentified male who knocked on the door of the residence had been shot by the homeowner and was deceased.  They advised Michael Jones had then locked himself in the trailer and was not responding to attempts to contact him.   Officers were also informed that witnesses heard a gunshot from within the trailer after Mr. Jones had locked himself inside. Troopers established a perimeter around the home and evacuated nearby residents while awaiting the Indiana State Police Emergency Response (ERT) Team.   After obtaining a search warrant, officers made entry into the trailer and found the Michael Jones deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The deceased male who was shot at the entrance to the residence has been identified as LARRY D MARLOWE, 34, Allen Street, Scottsburg, Indiana.
