Man fatally shot after police chase

Indianapolis police fatally shot an Indianapolis man Tuesday night after they say he attacked an officer. The shooting took
place after police tried to stop the driver of a 1994 Grand Marquis for a traffic violation near 30th and Richardt streets.
Police Sgt. Paul Thompson said the driver fled and smashed into the squad car before stopping in a field at the end of a dead-end
street on the city's far-east side. "It is my understanding the officer was physically assaulted and possibly knocked
down, and maybe knocked out. At some point in time, he was able to fire and the suspect was shot multiple times," Thompson
said. The 35-year-old suspect later died at Wishard Hospital. The officer went to Methodist Hospital and is in stable condition
with head injuries.
