SELLERSBURG, Ind. A southern Indiana man jailed after a lengthy standoff in which he wounded a police officer and killed a police dog is a former firefighter who's losing his home.

A spokesman for Louisville, Ky., Fire and Rescue said Tuesday that 31-year-old Joshua Priddy was fired in 2012 for failure to report for duty.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports (http://cjky.it/17AXZB3 ) Clark Circuit Court records show a sheriff's department sale of Priddy's Sellersburg home is scheduled for July 11 after a bank foreclosure.

Priddy was being held Tuesday in the Clark County Jail on six preliminary felony charges, including attempted murder. It wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.

The nearly 10-hour standoff ended late Monday after a SWAT team fired tear gas inside a home where Priddy was holed up.
