IMPD, SWAT team surround home on east side after shots fired


INDIANAPOLIS — A person surrendered to police peacefully after a home was surrounded by police and a SWAT team on Indy’s east side Tuesday night.

The situation began around 8:30 p.m., as IMPD officers were in the area of North Linwood Avenue and East Michigan Street for an unrelated call.

IMPD said that a man came out of a home in the 500 block of North Linwood, fired three shots at officers, then went back inside.

Additional officers were called in and the perimeter around the home was secured. The SWAT team was also called in as authorities attempted to make contact with someone inside.

Negotiators were soon able to identify a person inside the home that was wanted for several warrants.

Investigators say the person did not respond to commands to come outside, so distraction devices were deployed.

The person eventually came out and surrendered peacefully.

Police say no shots were fired by IMPD. No officers were hit by the initial gunfire.
