Dustin Turley was arrested in Jasonville Sunday, Aug. 2, 2020 for attempted murder.

HYMERA, Ind. — A Jasonville man was arrested Sunday after a shooting Friday night in the western Indiana town of Hymera that sent another man to an Indianapolis hospital.

Dustin L. Turley, 33, was wanted for attempted murder for allegedly shooting Trenton Keller, 33, at a house on East Depot Street in Hymera around 10 p.m. Friday.

Keller was shot multiple times and driven to Terre Haute, then flown to Indianapolis for treatment.

Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom contacted Indiana State Police for assistance with the investigation.

Detectives believe a verbal altercation between Turley and Keller led to the shooting. 

Witnesses said Turley ran into nearby woods after the shooting. Police said Saturday morning he was still on the run and had obtained the arrest warrant by then.

Cottom said police received a tip Sunday that Turley had just left the hymera area on a motorcycle, and within minutes, Greene County 911 received a call that Turley had just arrived at a residence in Jasonville, and the residents there were detaining him.

Both Greene and Sullivan County deputies responded and Turley was taken into custody.

He's now in the Sullivan County Jail where he is being held for Attempted Murder with a cash bond of $50,000, according to Cottom.
