Start Date: 3/21/2016 All Day
Entry Description
Community - March 21, 2016:

The Following information is being provided on behalf of Sheriff Steve Rogers, Howard County Sheriff's Department

Sergeant Buckley is listed in good condition, it is not yet known when he will be released,  Sheriff Rogers said "we will be happy to have him home."

At 11:10 am today a moment of silence will be observed, marking 24 hours from the time Deputy Carl Koontz succumbed to his wounds. This was requested by his wife Kassandra Koontz via social media.

During the day today members of the Howard County Sheriff's Department, as well as officers from other agencies, will attend a critical incident stress debriefing. This is a standard procedure for line of duty deaths and will allow those affected by this tragedy to grieve, comfort one another and seek counseling if needed. Please keep all involved in your thoughts and prayers.

This afternoon at 2 p.m. A procession will begin from Indianapolis to Kokomo, carrying the body of Deputy Carl Koontz. This will be a multiple agency effort and will involve dozens of police officers from several agencies. The details of the route of travel will be released later this morning. The community is invited to line the procession route in order to show respect for Deputy Koontz,  as well as to show support for his family and colleagues. 

The suspect has been identified as 25 year old Evan Dorsey. His photo is attached.

Details about funeral arrangements and upcoming events will be released as they become available. Members from law enforcement and the community will continue to offer support to Kassandra Koontz, son Noah and the entire family of Deputy Koontz. We will provide every resource possible to comfort them during this unimaginable time. 

The Indiana State Police will continue their investigation into this heinous crime. As information from the investigation becomes available it will be released.
