INDIANAPOLIS — A man was shot and killed by police officers at the end of a police chase this morning that ended on the south side.

Police say they were called around 3:00 a.m. after a woman and a man got into an argument near the woman’s home. Earlier police say they were sitting in separate cars when the fight started.

When police got there the man took off in his car and officers chased after him into an apartment complex off Stop 10 Road and Madison Avenue.

“That vehicle pursuit terminated … at Portage Terrence,” said IMPD Sgt. Shane Foley. “When the vehicle stopped the suspect exited the vehicle with a firearm in his hand. The suspect made multiple statements to police to ‘shoot me’.”

Foley said the officers told the man several times to put down the gun, but he refused. That’s when the cops fired at least one shot critically wounding the man.

Foley said the man later died at the hospital.

He added that the whole incident was recorded on police body cameras and it was through those cameras that they were able to confirm the man had a gun in his hand at the time of the shooting.

No officers were hurt.
