Tonight at a little after 10p an Indianapolis Metro Police Officer was shot in the 1600 Block of Lexington Avenue in Fountain Square. Info is still coming in and this is a developing story. We will have more information by morning.
At this point we know that there was a motor vehicle crash that the officer was either responding to or was at when the shooting happened. The name of the officer and their condition have not been released. At this point we don't know if it was a male or female officer, but we know they were transported to Eskenazi Hospital. A person of interest in the shooting has been taken into custody.
IMPD did release information that this will be a several hour investigation and will release additional information when it can be. Police are asking anyone with video doorbells or surveillance camera's that may have captured what happened to contact them through 911, call the Detectives Unit, or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call through Crime Stoppers.
Our thoughts and prayers to the officer, his family, and his/her Brothers in Blue.
Again, this is a developing story.
