GRANGER, Ind. (WNDU) Police have identified the suspect and officer involved in a domestic call that ended with a death in Granger.

Police were called to the Conover Drive home around 1:30 p.m. on reports of a man chasing his wife with a knife.

When police arrived, the suspect, identified as 58-year-old Allen Boehnlein, was still holding the knife and allegedly lunged at officers.
