EATON — Police believe a man was evicting a tenant from his property in a small central Indiana town when he was fatally shot over the weekend.The Delaware County coroner says 50-year-old Mark Gilland of Eaton was pronounced dead at the scene of Saturday's shooting inside a pole barn on the property about 10 miles north of Muncie.
Eaton Town Marshal Jonathon Snodgrass tells The Star Press that a man who investigators believe stole Gilland's pickup truck was arrested Sunday in Muncie.
Snodgrass say police believe Gilland had gone to the property to evict a tenant with whom he had a dispute. Family members found his body late Saturday, hours after investigators believe he was shot.
