Suspect Shot, Injured by IMPD Officer on Indy's West Side
INDIANAPOLIS -- An investigation is underway after a suspect was seriously injured in a police shooting on the city's west side, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
The shooting happened in the area of West 30th Street and Georgetown Road just after 12 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of a video store.
Authorities said the suspect is in serious condition, but he is expected to survive. The officer was not injured.
According to police, the male suspect was wanted for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in connection to the March 27 shooting of a security guard at Liquorland on the city's west side.

The suspect parked the vehicle in the lot and officers attempted to take him into custody. Police said the suspect attempted to leave the parking lot and then exited the car and began to run. He then turned around to grab a handgun from the vehicle when the officer fired at the suspect and struck him.
The suspect was taken to the hospital where he is being treated for his injuries. The officer did not suffer any injuries.
