Logansport Man Shoots Himself as Officers Attempt to Serve Warrant

A Logansport man shot himself Thursday morning while police officers attempted to serve an arrest warrant. 54 year-old Gary F. Colford was arrested May 26 on charges of child molesting. Colford posted bond and was scheduled to be back at court at 1:00 PM yesterday. Early in the day however, additional charges and new warrants were issued against him, leading authorities to serve a warrant at his home. Colford was armed with a handgun and standing in his backyard when officers arrived. He turned the weapon on himself and fired. Colford is at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. His condition is unknown at this time.
