PERRY COUNTY — Indiana State Police are investigating a shooting at the Perry County Memorial Hospital this morning that left a Tell City police officer dead.

Tell City is located in southern Indiana.

According to ISP, the incident occurred just before 2 a.m. EST when Sergeant Heather Glenn encountered 34-year-old Sean Hubert attempting to enter the hospital after a domestic violence victim told them he was on his way.

Glenn tried to detain Hubert using a electronic-controlled weapon, but was unsuccessful. At this time, Hubert pulled out a gun and fatally shot Sgt. Glenn.

Other officers with the Tell City Police Department and members of the Cannelton Police Department returned fire at this time, fatally striking Hubert.

Glenn was a near 20-year veteran of law enforcement in Perry County.

Tell City PD Chief Derrick Lawalin described Glenn as a good friend to everyone and said she will be sadly missed, but not forgotten. \

Governor Eric Holcomb released the following statement:

“Another officer has fallen victim to the senseless act of violence. I urge Hoosiers to remember Tell City Police Sgt. Heather Glenn who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of others. She dedicated nearly 20 years to serving the citizens of Perry County and Tell City and now her family needs our love and support more than ever.

Janet and I will hold her loved ones in our hearts during this painful time as they try and find peace and solace.”
