NEW ALBANY, Ind. — A man has died following a shootout with police outside a southern Indiana home.

State police say 36-year-old Benjamin Lucas died Saturday afternoon at a hospital.

New Albany officers were sent to the home about 1 p.m. Saturday to conduct a welfare check on a man when shots were fired at them from inside the house.

State police say Lucas then came out a rear door and was shot while exchanging gunfire with the officers. Lucas was pronounced dead shortly after being taken to a hospital. An autopsy was scheduled Sunday.

No officers were wounded. State police detectives are investigating the shooting.

New Albany is along the Ohio River, just north of Louisville, Kentucky.
