INDIANAPOLIS - Authorities are investigating after a Metro police officer shot a suspect early Sunday morning in the parking lot of an east side motel.
It happened just before 3:30 a.m. at the Country Hearth Inn and Suites on East 21st Street.
Officers went to the motel after a clerk called 911 saying a man was armed with a knife.
When officer Tracy Keithley arrived, she approached the man and gave him several commands, but police say he refused to cooperate.
A confrontation followed, and the officer fired at the suspect, hitting him multiple times.
Police identified the man as 29-year-old Anthony Mickle.
Mickle is in fair condition at Wishard Hospital.
Keithley was not injured.
