INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indianapolis’ police chief says a man who allegedly fired shots into an officer’s home and patrol car screamed obscenities against police during and after that attack.
Chief Troy Riggs says the officer’s wife and child were asleep inside and the officer was awake when his home was struck at least five times by gunfire about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. The officer and his family were not injured.
Riggs says the officer’s cruiser was hit at least three times as more than a dozen shots were fired.
He says the suspect had been arrested by the officer on a weapons charge eight years ago, but his motive in the attack isn’t clear.
Riggs says the suspect yelled anti-police obscenities after he was taken into custody. The man has not yet been charged.
