Police say the gunman, 50-year-old Roger Hawkins, barricaded himself inside a home next door and continued to sporadically fire shots.
SWAT negotiators tried for three hours to get Hawkins to surrender peacefully.
When that didn't work, they threw 'chemical agents' into the house.
Hawkins eventually came out and officers used beanbag rounds to subdue him.
He's been preliminarily charged with two counts of attempted murder and criminal recklessness.
"This incident could have resulted in a number of casualties, but I am proud of our officers for bringing this incident to a peaceful resolution. I would like to thank the community for their outpouring of concern and support for our wounded officer. I'd also like to thank all the public safety and medical professionals who assisted us today," said Troy Riggs, IMPD Chief.
