New details emerged this afternoon as Indiana State Police continued their investigation into the shooting death of Terre Haute officer Brent Long. Sgt. Joe Watts said 33-year-old Shaun Seeley was found dead inside the home where Long and his K-9 partner, Shadow, were shot while serving an arrest warrant.
Seeley was the subject of the arrest warrant for a probation violation. Court documents revealed that Officer Long’s warrant was for Seely’s having failed to appear at a June 17 hearing to answer to charges of receiving stolen auto parts. According to Indiana Department of Corrections records, Seeley was released from prison in 2010 after serving five years of a 12-year sentence for dealing narcotics.
The investigation into Monday’s shooting is still underway; more details are expected to be released as the autopsies are completed.
