Man shot by Carmel police faces multiple charges

Aaron David, 25, still in hospital

CARMEL, Ind. - A man shot by Carmel police Monday in the abdomen and chest is now facing criminal charges.

Court records obtained by the Call 6 Investigators show Aaron David, 25, has been charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor -- two counts of resisting law enforcement/use of vehicle to commit offense, one count of intimidation and one count of carrying a hand gun without a license.

Monday morning, a woman told police her ex-boyfriend, David, called her and said he was going to kill her and her current boyfriend, investigators said.

As police were taking the report, officers spotted a vehicle matching the description of David's vehicle in the Cedar Ridge area of Carmel. Police attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver, later identified as David, refused to stop.

After a short chase, police said David jumped out of the vehicle and continued to walk down the street into a cul-de-sac.

When police finally caught up with David, officers said they saw he was holding a gun and ordered him several times to drop it.

Police said officers shot David in the chest and the abdomen after he refused to drop the gun. He was taken to St. Vincent Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Prosecutors told Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney Wednesday legal proceedings will happen after David is released from the hospital.
