HCSO: Man Arrested After Exchanging Gunfire With Deputy

A man is facing felony charges after allegedly exchanging gunfire with Hancock County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Deputies responded to 16091 County Road 8 in Jackson Township a little before 7 o’clock Wednesday night to investigate a domestic dispute.

During their investigation, the sheriff’s office says Dean Lauck, 51, of Arlington, pulled a gun.

The sheriff’s office says gunfire was exchanged between Lauck and deputies and Lauck fled the area.

No one was struck by the gunfire.

The area was searched by K-9s, a helicopter and a drone and Lauck was taken into custody later in the evening.

He was taken to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and charged with felonious assault, a first-degree felony.
