An off-duty Indianapolis police officer is facing attempted murder charges after allegedly shooting a fellow cop.
According to the Indianapolis Star, the wounded Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer was responding to a domestic dispute call involving 42-year old cop Adrian Aurs, and his estranged wife on Friday, July 30.

During the investigation Aurs reportedly came back to the apartment and started shooting.
The on-duty detective returned fire, but missed Aurs.


The detective suffered wounds to his elbow and back. Authorities aren’t sure if the bullet that hit his elbow ricocheted into his back or if he was shot twice. He was hospitalized in good condition
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Major Rich Riddle provides an update shooting involving off-duty officer and a detective.

“Some kind of domestic incident occurred involving one of our off-duty IMPD officers and what we believe to be his estranged wife at the time,” IMPD Major Rich Riddle told reporters. “Our (Special Investigations Unit) detective came to the scene to begin that investigation into the allegation of a domestic violence situation.”
Aurs fled the scene in his car, but was caught in Ohio following an hour-long standoff with Cincinnati police, according to the Associated Press.

“Our detectives are on their way to Cincinnati to continue their investigations,” Riddle said.
Aurs has been suspended without pay, pending termination from the department.
