Deputy shot man while serving warrant, IMPD said


A Marion County Sheriff’s Office deputy shot a 30-year-old man Saturday evening in Broad Ripple while attempting to serve a warrant, according to police.

The man, who had a warrant in Tennessee for aggravated assault with a weapon, was taken to a local hospital where he was in serious but stable condition, said Lt. Shane Foley, a spokesman for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

The man who was shot appears to have been unarmed. “No firearm has been located at this time,” Foley said. 

Asked what led the deputy to fire on the man, Foley said: “That will be part of the investigation. We don’t have an answer for you at this time.”

Foley said six deputies had been dispatched to serve the warrant, but it was unclear how many were at the scene when the shooting occurred. They located the man in the driver’s seat of a vehicle outside the River House apartment building near the 6300 block of Westfield Boulevard at about 5:30 p.m., Foley said.
