Indianapolis, Indiana (WTHR) — Indianapolis’ police chief says a suspect is in custody after someone opened fire on an officer’s patrol car overnight outside the officer’s home.
Chief Troy Riggs says the officer’s cruiser was struck 3-4 times about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Barbara Greeson’s son alerted her that the rapid popping sound on their street overnight had to be gunfire. She woke up to police everywhere.
“They said it was only 17 shots, but it was, ‘BRRRR!’ Like that,” she said.
The gunfire happened at the home of her neighbor, Officer John Walters. The officer took cover inside as three bullets struck his police car and five rounds hit the house where his wife and son were sleeping.
One of the bullets struck really close.
