IMPD officer involved in shooting

At approximately 1 a.m., officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) were dispatched to the 7200 block of McFarland Road on a report of shots fired. 

When officers arrived, they found a slightly injured officer who did not require medical treatment who had just been involved in officer-involved shooting.

Preliminarily, investigators believe that the officer involved and his wife were at home when his wife heard the front door being disturbed. 

She looked out a window and saw two unknown individuals fidgeting with the front door. The wife immediately notified her husband, a reserve officer with IMPD, who feared that someone was attempting a break-in. The officer immediately armed himself with his service weapon and exited the rear door of the house. 

As the officer approached his driveway, he walked around his fully marked police car, and observed an unknown vehicle that was running with an unknown number of occupants inside. As the officer approached the vehicle, he identified himself as a police officer and demanded the occupants identify themselves. The vehicle suddenly started in reverse, in a reckless and threatening manor, hitting and slightly injuring the officer.  The officer, fearing for his own safety, fired an unknown number of rounds at the vehicle. The rounds from the officer’s service weapon did not strike any of the vehicle’s occupants, and no property damage was reported.    

Members of IMPD’s Critical Incident Response Team responded and have begun an internal investigation — which is standard — into the circumstances of this incident. 

The suspect’s involved in this incident, unidentified, later called police indicating they had been involved in an incident with the police. Investigators have responded to the location, unknown, to conduct interviews. 

Once investigators complete their investigation the case will be reviewed by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, which is standard, for any officer-involved shooting.
