(MICHIGAN CITY) – The Indiana State Police are conducting an investigation into the death of an inmate at the Michigan City State Prison.

The ISP Criminal Investigations Division at the Lowell Post were contacted by the Indiana Department of Correction to investigate the death of 30 year old Daniel Heflin, who was originally from Goshen.

Heflin was serving a 90 year sentence on charges of murder and attempted murder from 2012. He also admitted to committing the offenses as part of a criminal gang.

The shooting took place on March 22, 2012 northwest of downtown Goshen. Heflin fired shots at a pick up. One of the occupants of the truck, 26 year old John Staub of Goshen, suffered a fatal wound to the chest. Another occupant, David Goble, had a leg injury.

Police investigators say the shooting resulted from an earlier dispute between Goble and 25 year old William Terry of Goshen. Terry was also sentenced to 25 years for conspiracy to commit murder.

Two other accomplices were sentenced for their roles in the shooting after pleading guilty to felony counts of assisting a criminal.

The investigation into Heflin's death is ongoing. No other information will be released at this time.
