INDIANAPOLIS — We now know the name of the man that was shot by a Marion County deputy on Saturday.

His name is William Manery. There’s a warrant for his arrest in two states. He’s wanted for assault in Tennessee and possession of a stolen vehicle in South Carolina, according to IMPD.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Department received word from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department in Tennessee that Manery may be in the Indy area.

Marion County deputies found him asleep inside his car on Westfield Boulevard. Deputies asked him to step out of the car, but he didn’t and decided to escape.

Manery sped forward, smashing his car into a deputy’s patrol car. Then he tried to go backward but smashed into an unmarked patrol car.

That’s when one Marion County deputy finally shot Manery. He was arrested and IMPD says he is expected to recover from his injuries.

Investigators say no guns were found in Manery’s car. No officers were hurt in the shooting, but the deputy has been placed on administrative leave.
