Police shoot suspect at Indianapolis east side gas station
Detectives arrested 23-year-old Manuel Staples and 23-year-old Monique Buckley, both of Indianapolis. They each face a preliminary charge of robbery. Both suspects are awaiting a final charging decision by the Marion County Prosecutor's Office at the Arrestee Processing Center.
Officers were conducting an investigation in the area at approximately 3:00 a.m. when they noticed a suspicious vehicle circling a business lot near Circle K. When that vehicle stopped abruptly, an unidentified man got out headed toward the business. The officers got out of their squad cars and surrounded the business.
The officer shot the man, who is expected to survive, according to police at the scene. No officers or civilians were hurt.
IMPD has begun their standard investigation, and the Marion County Prosecutor will review the findings, as with any officer-involved shooting.
