LEBANON, Ind. (AP) — The Latest on the shooting of a central Indiana sheriff's deputy (all times local):
A central Indiana sheriff says a deputy who was shot while pursuing a suspect won't survive his wounds.
Boone County Sheriff Mike Nielsen said Friday afternoon 30-year-old Deputy Jacob Pickett was on life support at an Indianapolis hospital so his organs can be donated.
He says Pickett is married and has two young boys. Nielsen says Pickett joined the department about three years ago and became a canine officer.
He says called Pickett "an absolutely amazing person" and "warrior" who will be sorely missed by colleagues.
Nielsen says police believe 21-year-old Anthony Baumgardt shot Pickett during a Friday morning foot chase in the city of Lebanon northwest of Indianapolis after Baumgardt and two other men allegedly fled officers serving an arrest warrant for a fourth person.
State Police have released the names of three men arrested following a shooting that left a central Indiana sheriff's deputy in critical condition.

State Police Sgt. John Perrine says a Boone County Sheriff's deputy was shot about 9:30 a.m. Friday and the male officer was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital. The wounded deputy's name has not been released.
Perrine says the deputy was shot during a foot chase that unfolded when suspects fled Lebanon police as they were serving a search warrant in the city about 20 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
He says three suspects have been taken into custody and one of them was shot by police. He says that suspect's condition isn't known.
Lebanon Community Schools were placed on lockdown following the shooting.
