Howard County Sheriff Steven Rogers says Deputy Carl Koontz died at an Indianapolis hospital after being shot about 12:30 a.m. Sunday at a mobile home in Russiaville, about 60 miles north of Indianapolis.
    
Koontz had been a deputy less than three years. Rogers says he had a wife and a child about 8 months old.
    
Indiana State Police say a second deputy, Sgt. Jordan Buckley, also was shot. He is in stable condition, and is alert and conscious.
    
Both officers had been wearing body armor.
    
An unidentified suspect was found dead inside the mobile home. Rogers says the deputies were serving arrest and search warrants when they were met with gunfire.
