Hendricks County Flyer

INDIANAPOLIS– A Carmel police officer assigned to the Metro Drug Task Force fatally shot a suspect on the city’s west side  between 5900 W and 660 N early Thursday morning.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex at 5937 Beachview Dr. around 6:05 a.m. The Marion County coroner identified the man as 36-year-old Jose Guerrero.

Members of the DEA and Metro Drug Task Force were there to serve warrants when they were confronted by an armed suspect. The suspect ignored verbal commands to lower his weapon and instead, pointed his gun at the detectives.  The suspect was shot and pronounced dead at the scene.

The death investigation will be conducted by the IMPD CIRT (Critical Incident Response Team).  Marion County Crime Lab will assist in gathering evidence. 

The DEA and Metro Drug Task Force are comprised of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  Additional updates will be provided as information becomes available.
