INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department investigator was hospitalized with non life-threatening gunshot wound -related injuries after responding to a domestic violence call involving an off-duty IMPD Officer last night.
The suspect -- police officer Adrian Aurs, 42, of Indianapolis -- was arrested in Ohio on a Marion County warrant for attempted murder. Members of the Cincinnati Police Department reportedly were able to take Aurs into custody where he was later located after an hour -long standoff on Interstate 75.
The IMPD reports that Aurs was immediately suspended without pay and pending termination of employment from department. The suspect's assigned police vehicle and duty belt have been recovered.
According to the report, IMPD officers responded to Valley Ridge Apartments in reference a domestic violence call involving the off-duty IMPD officer and his estranged wife, according to a press release. When officers and an on-duty supervisor arrived at about 8:30 p.m., the IMPD officer suspect was not on-scene and the Special Investigations Unit investigator followed up a short time later.
While the SIU detective was inside the apartment , the suspect allegedly entered and shot the 20-year veteran of IMPD. The injured investigator was able to call for help and was taken to an area hospital, where he is listed in good condition with an injury to his elbow and back.
Aurs then fled the scene and headed to Ohio in a personally- owned vehicle.
Detectives are working on extraditing Aurs back to Indianapolis to be processed at the Arrestee Processing Center. Detectives are also securing a search warrant for the suspect's personal vehicle, according to the press release.
