Man arrested on attempted murder charge after shooting at police

A Greenwood man was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after he shot a gun at a Bargersville police officer.

Andrew Phillip McQuinn, 27, was arrested on a charge of attempted murder late Sunday.

The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office will decide what, if any, charges to file. No one was shot in the incident.

Bargersville police responded to a domestic disturbance around 8 p.m. Sunday at Clary Crossing Apartments on the northside of town, according to a news release from the Bargersville Police Department.

Dispatch told officers that a man and woman were involved, and there was a gun at the scene. An officer saw a muzzle flash in his direction and heard multiple gunshots, the news release said.

The officer took cover. The man threw the gun on the ground, laid down and officers arrested him, said Jeremy Roll, Bargersville police spokesman.

The responding officer was unsure of how many gunshots were fired, but investigating officers found six shell casings from a 9mm gun on the ground near the scene, Roll said.

Officers are unsure of who the gun belongs too, but suspect it is McQuinn’s gun, although he did not have a license for it at the scene, he said.

A child inside the apartment at the time of the shooting was not hurt. The woman involved in the disturbance was treated at Community Hospital South, Roll said.

"She was OK at the scene, but she needed to be checked out," he said.

The Daily Journal does not identify the victims of crimes.

McQuinn, 636 Lawndale Drive, was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he is held on $40,000 bond.

Police are still investigating and may pursue additional charges, Roll said.

Eleven Bargersville police officers — on duty and reserves — responded to the scene. Officers from the Greenwood Police Department and Johnson County Sheriff’s Office also responded.
