Names of those involved in the officer involved shooting Tuesday afternoon have been released.

At 2:00 P.M. Tuesday afternoon, the Huntingburg Police Department received a message through social media from Zachary Tyler Peek, 27, Huntingburg, requesting that they meet at League Stadium on the south side of town.

Concerned by the nature of the message, and knowing that the Department had been to recent calls for service with Peek, the responding officer requested that a supervisor go with him to meet Peek.

After arriving in a parking lot on the east side of League Stadium, Officers Tyler Stivers, Tim Mullens, and Christian Gogel found Peek standing in the middle of the parking lot, holding what appeared to be a revolver.

Multiple commands were given by officers for Peek to place the weapon on the ground, to which he refused to do. Peek then raised the gun, pointing it directly at Stivers.

Stivers and Gogel fired on Peek, striking him multiple times.

Officers immediately requested emergency medical services to tend to Peek. He was transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper and was transferred to St. Mary’s in Evansville, where he remains in serious condition. Officers on scene were unharmed.

This incident remains under investigation by the Indiana State Police.
