Tampico, IN –  A family fight over dogs led to the shooting death of a rural Tampico man Saturday and the arrest of his son for his murder, according to Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

Receiving three reports of an injured man at 11 p.m., Jackson County Sheriff’s Department officers went to the home of John Shoultz, 48, at 7865 S. State Road 39 south of Tampico and found him dead from gunshot wounds.

A short time later, his son, John A. Shoultz III, 20, was stopped by Jennings County police as he and his girlfriend, Andrea D. Howard, 19, of Crothersville, were driving east on U.S. 50 in North Vernon.

He and his Dad were arguing over dogs in the house,” Lahrman said of the suspect and incident that led to the shooting. Lahrman said the older Shoultz was shot at least three times by a large caliber handgun. More on Crothersville Times
