INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (Nov. 4)--Residents who live in the Riverside neighborhood will notice an increase in the number of Marion County Sheriff's deputies.

Officers with The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the Marion County Sheriff's Office (MSCO) are actively looking for a possible second suspect in connection with Monday's shooting involving an off-duty sheriff's deputy.

"It's not acceptable what happened here Monday, and moving forward we are going to be an active partner with IMPD," said MSCO Major Michael Hubbs.

Starting Wednesday night, the near west side of Indianapolis was saturated with MSCO squad cars.

The new detail comes just days after an off-duty reserve deputy was in a shootout with Dennis Green.

"I have no doubt that the deputies training and his experience paid off that day," said Major Hubbs.

Major Hubbs says the off-duty deputy witnessed a shooting and chased Green in his squad car. Shots were exchanged and Green was hit and arrested.

"You do take it personally when someone tried to kill one of your co-workers," said Hubbs.

"One thing led to another and we got a good arrest out of it," said Lt. David Coonce.

Lt. Coonce was one of the officers patrolling the west side Wednesday night. He responded to several calls.

First, a routine traffic stop turned into a drug bust.

"There were some prescription pills and it looks like some crack cocaine," said Lt. Coonce.

The officers also responded to a runaway suspect and a driver who refused to stop.

Green is facing attempted murder charges. If you know anything about Monday's shooting, you are asked to call police or crime stoppers.
