Indianapolis officer shoots man threatening harm

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police say an officer shot a man threatening to harm himself and police after a domestic dispute.

Sgt. Kendale Adams says the man was in a bedroom behind a closed door early Thursday and when he opened the door, one officer shot the man in the head and another officer shocked him with a stun gun.

The man was in serious but stable condition at a hospital with what Adams called a survivable wound. Adams says the man also will receive a mental evaluation.

Police have not released the names of the man or the officer who shot him.

Adams says police haven’t found a weapon.

No officers were injured.

Police say two officers at the scene have been placed on administrative leave, and the investigation is continuing.
