CARMEL, IND. — Officers with the Carmel Police Department shot a man early Monday morning following a domestic situation.
Police were dispatched to a neighborhood near 96th Street and Ditch Road around 3:15 a.m. to investigate a threat to life call.
According to Lt. Jeff Horner with the Carmel Police Department, the suspect, identified as 25-year-old Aaron David, was making threats to his ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend.
When police arrived in the area, they matched a vehicle description with one seen in the neighborhood. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle refused to stop.
Once the vehicle stopped, near the 10000 block of Cedar Ridge Place, the suspect reportedly exited the vehicle and began to walk down the road, ignoring officers’ commands to stop.
The suspect did finally stop, turned toward officers and displayed a handgun. That is when police said officers shot the suspect.
Medics transported David to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, where he will undergo surgery.
