LAWRENCE, Ind. – Police are searching for three suspects after shots were fired at a Lawrence officer Friday morning.

Police say an officer tried to stop a car near 42nd and Post, and a brief chase ensued. The car came to a stop inside the Maison Garden apartment complex when the suspects realized it was a dead end. Three men wearing jeans ran from the car, and one of them fired a shot at an officer. The officer was not hit and did not return fire.

They all fled in different directions, and police were unable to locate them.
