An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer is on administrative leave after shooting a suspect on Sunday in a south-side home invasion. Officers responded to the 200 block of Bakemeyer Street just before 11 a.m. Sunday. Multiple 911 callers had reported a man driving a green station wagon erratically in the area before backing into a driveway between two yellow houses. Police saw the suspect enter and later leave one of those two homes with a handgun. An officer fired at the suspect, striking him. The suspect was taken to Wishard Hospital in critical condition. The officer was placed on administrative leave, which is standard police procedure.
