Indianapolis police are holding a suspect who fled an officer Wednesday afternoon, leading to a car chase that ended with a police shooting. An officer tried to pull over the suspect in the 400 block of North Tibbs Avenue at around 4:30 p.m., but the suspect pulled away in his vehicle, police said. Shortly after the chase began, both the suspect and pursuing officer collided with a house in the 500 block of North Centennial Street. The suspect fled on foot and at one point aimed a gun at the officer, who then shot the suspect in the leg. The suspect was taken to Methodist Hospital in good condition.
