INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police officers shot a man early Saturday after he refused orders to drop a rifle, authorities said.
The wounded man was taken to a hospital in critical condition while a juvenile with him wasn’t wounded in the shooting about 3 a.m., city police spokeswoman Sgt. Grace Sibley said.
The shooting happened on the city’s south side as officers were searching for two males reportedly involved in an attempted carjacking.
Officers spotted the man and juvenile walking along a road about a half mile away, with the man seen carrying a rifle, Sibley said. Officers fired after he didn’t drop the rifle, she said. The juvenile followed commands from officers and was taken into custody.
No officers were injured in the confrontation, Sibley said.
The department’s Critical Incident Response Team and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating the shooting, she said.
