INDIANAPOLIS — A man was arrested early Wednesday following a standoff with police at an Indianapolis motel where another man was critically wounded in a shooting, police said.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a person shot at the Motor 8 Inn in the 3700 block of North Shadeland Avenue near East 38th Street.

Police found a man with gunshot wounds who was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.
