Police report that on Monday at the Subaru plant in Lafayette, a man shot and injured a female coworker. Officers were summoned to the factory near I-65 and SR 38 at roughly 4:15 p.m. on a complaint of a shooting, according to Lafayette Police.
A woman who had been shot was discovered. She was taken to the hospital to treat unspecified injuries, but according to the police, she was awake when she arrived.
“We found the culprit soon after the shooting. There is no longer a threat to the community since, in our opinion, he committed suicide, according to Lafayette Police Department Lt. Justin Hartman.
The man and lady both worked at the Subaru plant and were previously dating, the police discovered. According to Hartman, the shooting appeared to be an “isolated event between a couple of persons,” and neither the business nor its employees, in general, seemed to be the objective of the attack.

According to Hartman, some portions of the plant were shut during the shooting, and others, including a daycare center, were evacuated. According to Hartman, when the culprit was, operations proceeded as usual.
The “all clear” was granted roughly an hour after the shooting; however, the second shift at the plant was canceled. As a result, a Subaru official told 13News. Later, the factory declared that the first shift on Tuesday and the third one on Monday night had also been canceled. Indiana State Police said the close event did not affect Interstate 65.
