INDIANAPOLIS — An IMPD officer shot and wounded a wanted woman late Wednesday on the city’s northwest side.

No police were injured in the incident.

It happened when officers attempted to arrest 31-year-old Jasmine Brame, who police identified as a suspect in an incident where shots were fired into a vehicle and a residence earlier this month. She also had two active warrants, one for armed robbery and the other for multiple charges, including domestic battery, intimidation and carrying a handgun without a license with a prior conviction, according to IMPD. 

Officers located Brame in the area of 8000 Silverleaf Drive. Brame walked westbound across Harcourt Road, where a uniformed officer tried to arrest her. Police say the officer gave Brame commands to stop and show her hands. During the encounter, the same officer fired his service weapon at Brame and struck her.

IMPD said she was armed with a handgun.

Brame was described as stable at St. Vincent Hospital with at least one gunshot wound.

On October 6, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office filed the following charges against Brame stemming from this incident:

  • Carrying a handgun without a license
  • Resisting law enforcement
  • Pointing a firearm

The officer who fired his weapon has been placed on administrative leave during the investigation, which is standard department procedure.

“Our officers work day in and day out. I believe that community expects us to attempt or hold those accountable,” said officer William Young of IMPD.

The officer involved was equipped with a bodycam, according to police.

Investigators with the Violent Crimes Task Force & Violence Reduction Team had been tracking the woman.

IMPD says there is no threat to the public at this time.
