Indiana conservation officers investigating a Spencer attorney’s shooting this week at a southern Indiana state park also have searched his home as part of the investigation.

Peter Raventos, 44, was shot Monday at McCormick’s Creek State Park near Spencer. Raventos called 911 shortly after 10 p.m. He told authorities that he’d been shot in the back as he walked along a trail at the park.

Raventos spent at least one night at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where he was transported. An IU Methodist spokesperson said Raventos had been discharged, but privacy laws prevented her from saying when he left the hospital.

Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division Lt. Bill Browne said Raventos had been hit “in the backside” with 22 shotgun pellets.

Browne confirmed Friday that investigators executed a search warrant at Raventos’ home in Ellettsville on Wednesday. Browne declined to comment on the contents of the search warrant but confirmed it was related to the shooting investigation. He said authorities expected to release more information soon.
