INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 22, 2015) — Police have released the name of the suspect in Saturday night’s officer-involved shooting.
The man has been identified as Kent Norman of Indianapolis. Police released his photo Sunday evening.
Police were called to the 1800 block of Heather Circle around 4 p.m. Saturday on a report of a disturbance. When officers arrived, they found Norman wielding a knife inside the home.
