A man is dead after two Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies shot him at a residence just outside Bloomington Tuesday morning.
Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields identified the man as 24-year-old Daniel Boyer of Bloomington.
Sheriff Brad Swain says the deputies were serving two warrants at a trailer home off W. Tower Rd, including a drug-related warrant for Boyer.
Swain says Boyer exited the back of the residence, raised a semi-automatic handgun and shouted something like “F— this.”
The deputies fired an unknown number of shots at Boyer. It’s unclear how many times they hit him.
Swain says Boyer did not fire the handgun. He says Boyer had previously fled at a different time when deputies attempted to serve the warrant related to dealing and possession of methamphetamine.
Both deputies were interviewed and have been placed on paid leave. One of the deputies was a senior officer who was training the second, newer deputy. Swain says both deputies were wearing body cameras.
“That information is part of the investigation at this point, so rather than making estimations on some things we’ll let the video system provide accurate information,” Swain says.
Police are not releasing the identities of the two deputies who shot Boyer.
Swain says CPR was performed at the scene. Boyer was transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital, where Sheilds says he was pronounced dead at 10:01 a.m.
Shields says cause and manner of death is pending a Wednesday morning autopsy in Terre Haute.

Multiple other adults and a 16-year-old were in the trailer at the time of the shooting. Swain says they have been transported to the Sheriff’s office.
The mobile home was the residence of a 33-year-old woman wanted on a warrant regarding a home detention violation.
Swain says the Bloomington Police Department sent the Critical Incident Response Team with an armored vehicle to clear the residence after the shooting, but he says the CIRT team did not have to facilitate the removal of the other adults from the mobile home.
Indiana State Police also responded to the scene and are assisting in the investigation.
Swain says the last officer-involved shooting in Monroe County was about 10 years ago.
