Indianapolis police say an officer has shot and wounded a man after he pointed a gun at a woman.
Officers Kendale Adams says the shooting Sunday afternoon left the suspect with a gunshot wound to his chest. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition. His name wasn't immediately released.
Adams says the man was shot by Officer Greg Taylor, an 11-year police veteran.
Adams says the woman summoned police because the man threatened to kill her. As Taylor escorted her back inside a home, the man raised the gun he was holding and pointed it at her before Taylor shot him.
The man fled from the home but was captured with the help of a police dog.
No one else was hurt.
