A man involved in a confrontation with an Indiana conservation officer has died after being shot by a witness.

Officials said Holland resisted arrest, and a fight broke out between the pair. "At some point, that officer began to lose that altercation with that person," said Sgt. Stephen Wheeles with Indiana State Police. "It was at that time that a female who was nearby saw what was taking place and decided that she needed to take action and come to the assistance of that officer."
