NOBLESVILLE — A man shot by a Noblesville Police Department officer Wednesday morning has been transported to an Indianapolis hospital, police said.

Officers with the Noblesville Police Department responded to a home in the 600 block of South 5th Street at 5:22 a.m. on an "unknown call for police," according to Lt. Bruce Barnes.

Barnes said officers arrived a short time later but were unable to get a response from anyone in the house. Shortly after, police heard yelling coming from the west and saw a man and his girlfriend walking back towards the house.

A Noblesville police officer then shot the man, identified as Karmen Parrish, 41. He was transported to Methodist Hospital and is stable condition, according to Carmel Police. Police have not explained the circumstances about what led to the shooting.

No other information has been provided. Carmel Police will be handling the investigation.

Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen released the following statement Wednesday afternoon on the shooting:

"This morning our officers responded to disturbance calls multiple times at the same residence involving an individual with an active warrant. The final interaction ended in an officer-involved shooting, which is an unfortunate ending to any public safety call for assistance.

I have been briefed on the status of the matter and continue to receive updates on a regular basis.

I am grateful for the continued commitment from the Noblesville Police Department to keep our community safe. Our officers train tirelessly for instances they hope to never face, but are prepared for when they do. I am thankful for our partners at the Carmel Police Department who, per protocol, will step in to lead the investigation into this shooting. Our community’s safety is my No. 1 priority."
