Names released in a officer-involved fatal shooting

Sue Loughlin, The Tribune-Star, Terre Haute, Ind.
A Terre Haute police officer responding to a domestic stabbing on Thursday shot and killed a man armed with a knife, according to city and state police.

The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. at 1644 First Ave. in Terre Haute, according to Indiana State Police, who are conducting the investigation.

The individual who died has been identified as James Ready, 42, of Terre Haute.

Officer Adam Noel of the traffic unit was involved in the incident. In a news conference Thursday afternoon, Terre Haute Police Department Chief Shawn Keen said Noel has eight years of service and is “an exceptional officer.”

Per department policy, Keen said, Noel has been placed on administrative leave.

Vigo County Prosecutor Terry Modesitt asked the Indiana State Police to conduct the investigation.

Police were dispatched to the home on First Avenue to investigate a domestic disturbance. Keen said the 911 call came from a male caller inside the residence.

Noel arrived less than a minute after the radio call and heard a woman screaming inside the house. Noel kicked in the door and entered. Inside, he saw Ready brandishing a knife, police said.

Despite repeated verbal commands to drop the knife, Ready advanced toward the officer while still wielding the knife.

I’ll go out on a limb and call this one a save. BZ Officer Noel! I’ll also presume the last thing Mr. Ready heard was “Drop the knife.”

The incident happened at approximately 1:30 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 3800 block of Nicholasville Road, said Lt. Joe Anderson with the Lexington Police Department. The break-in suspect had already fled when police arrived to the scene.

The suspect checked himself into a local hospital roughly one hour later with a gunshot wound, according to Anderson. The suspect was shot while trying to break into the apartment.

Things seem to work out better for some folks if they listen to the nice Police Officer’s instructions to drop the weapon. Put their hands up etc etc. It tends to make for fewer trips to the hospital or morgue.


Especially when the PoPo just kicked the door in to discuss the situation!


Yep! Mr. Ready must not of been ready to discuss his trip to hell arrangements. The burglar perp was prolly ready to see about his fluids leaking out.

Learn the difference between a fox and a dog. It’s usually 6-9 beers. Never went to sleep with a dog…woke up with a few.

Lubs my flintlock. .36 accurate as all hell. Does take a few shots to get used to the delay between the flash in the pan and the BOOM!

Don’t know if anyone’s been tracking this story here in CT:

Naugatuck police said Camilla Francisquini was {redacted details of violence} on Nov. 18. Authorities have obtained an arrest warrant that charges her father with murder with special circumstances and risk of injury to a minor. Bond for him has been set at $5 million.

Dude’s been caught. I wish him a narrow slice of time left here on the planet.
