The 10-year-old stabbing victim of the domestic disturbance which allegedly occurred before the Wabash Police Department (WPD) officer-involved shooting Thursday later died from their injuries, according to Sgt. Tony Slocum, Indiana State Police Department (ISP) public information officer for the Peru District.

Late Friday, Mayor Scott Long referred all future questions about the incident to the ISP, as the WPD had asked them to take charge of the investigation, per department policy.
