INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police say an officer has been shot while serving a search warrant on the city's east side.
Police said the officer was shot in the forearm Wednesday afternoon and was hospitalized in good condition.
Police said a suspect was critically wounded in an exchange of gunfire that erupted as police were serving an arrest warrant in an area just north of the Fountain Square neighborhood.
Indianapolis police said both the wounded officer and the suspect were being treated at a local hospital.
Police spokesman Sgt. Christopher Wilburn tells The Indianapolis Star that the shooting "was the result of a bad actor pretending to be a hero."
Nearby resident Karen Dennis tells the newspaper that she heard about 10 shots in fast succession and saw people running in the area.
