Wife: Medication may have played role in shooting

Posted: Updated:

LOOGOOTEE, Ind. (AP) -- The wife of a southwest Indiana man who died in a shootout with a state trooper says he may not have been right mentally at the time because he had recently changed medication for Alzheimer's disease.

Alice Jones tells the Washington Times-Herald her husband, James Jones, had not been himself the past month. Jones says she can't prove the medication change was a factor, but she says he had been so concerned about how he had been acting.

Police say Trooper Jared Lents was struck multiple times June 17 while responding to an armed robbery at a gun shop in the Daviess County town of Montgomery, about 50 miles northeast of Evansville. Jones, who is from nearby Shoals, died in the exchange of gunshots.
