Harrison County Sheriff Rod Seelye says officers were chasing the car in connection with a stabbing investigation. That chase crossed into Crawford County, where the crash happened and Jackson left his car.

Seelye says he charged at the deputy with a weapon before he was shot. The deputy wasn’t hurt.

Indiana State Police detectives are reviewing the shooting that happened about 40 miles west of Louisville.
