JASPER, Ind. (WFIE) - The Jasper Police Department is investigating a deadly shooting that happened at the Maple Grove Trailer Park early Saturday morning.

Police responded to a man with a gunshot wound needing assistance at 2:15 a.m. ET on Rhine Strasse near the 47th Street.

According to authorities, the Jasper Police Department received a call from Memorial Hospital about a man taken to the ER with a gunshot wound.

Jasper police say they later found an incident that happened at the trailer park south of the 47th Street intersection between Tre Carnahan, 21, of Eckerty, and Andres Lopez, 19, of Owensboro, Kentucky. According to police, both men exchanged gunfire with handguns.

“I was asleep and my dad woke up to a bunch of sirens and ambulances, and he woke me up saying there was a bunch of police - probably five cop cars on our street,” said Brayden Schue, who lives near where the shooting reportedly occurred. “This is definitely more alarming than anything. I mean, you don’t hear about this kind of thing in Jasper, so I couldn’t really sleep.”

Police say both men later succumbed to their injuries at Memorial Hospital.

This is an ongoing investigation.
