INDIANAPOLIS — A man was shot and injured by Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers after an hours-long investigation, police pursuit and exchange of gunfire on the northeast side Sunday.

IMPD says around 3 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a shots fired call in Broad Ripple. During a dispute between a woman and the father of her child, police say the man shot into her vehicle.

Throughout the day, IMPD continued to investigate and tried to find the suspect.

Around 4 p.m., the man was located at the BP gas station at 38th and Fall Creek. When officers tried to apprehend him, a chase began that ended in the area of Winding Way and Kessler Boulevard East Drive.

The suspect and the vehicle crashed into another vehicle, which was not involved in the incident.

IMPD Deputy Chief Joshua Barker says the suspect and another man ran from the area. Barker says the suspect fired shots at officers and three IMPD cops fired their weapons.

In an update around 2:30 p.m. Monday, the suspect is in critical condition, according to IMPD.

The second person was also taken to the hospital after complaining of chest pain. He was not shot.

Two firearms, both with extended magazines, were recovered at the scene. No officers were injured.
