INDIANAPOLIS -- Former IMPD officer Adrian Aurs has reached an agreement to pay $150,000 in restitution to the city of Indianapolis as a result of his conviction for shooting a fellow officer in 2016.

Aurs, an 18-year veteran of the force, was arrested in July 2016 after exchanging gunfire with a detective investigating a complaint against him at Aurs’ ex-wife’s apartment. The detective was struck three times. He returned fire, but didn’t hit Aurs.

Aurs was eventually apprehended on the Brent Spence Bridge in Ohio after a brief standoff situation.

In February, Aurs pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and two counts of pointing a firearm, all level 6 felonies. He was sentenced a month later to 12 years in the Indiana Department of Correction.
