Burglary suspect fires at police

April 23, 2010

Police exchanged gunfire with a suspected burglar on the north side of Indianapolis early Friday morning. Officers were called to Uncle T’s Variety Store on Evanston Avenue after an alarm sounded just before 3 a.m.  Someone fired a shot at police officers, and at least one officer returned fire. Police say the suspect got away by climbing over a nearby building using a fire escape ladder. Police later went to a home in the 4900 block of Evanston and took a man and woman in for questioning about the crime. At this point, police are not calling them suspects.
