The sheriff’s department continues its investigation into the May 8 shootout near Tampico that left a deputy and an 18-year-old Brownstown man with gunshot wounds.
The probe includes tracking down the history and ownership of the .38-caliber handgun that police say was used to shoot Officer Rick Meyer twice — once in each shoulder.
One man — Isiah Tyler Roger, the rural Brownstown man shot that night in return fire by Meyer — has been arrested and is charged with attempted murder. His arrest doesn’t end the investigation or the possibility of more charges being filed, Sheriff Michael Carothers said.
