INDIANAPOLIS — A man who Metro police shot three times on the south side of Indianapolis is now in custody.  

Aung Aung, 31, has been charged with attempted murder. 

According to IMPD, officers responded to the Greentree Apartments near Stop 11 Road and Madison Avenue around 8:20 p.m. Friday on a report of shots fired.

Police said late Friday multiple people called 911 after the male suspect allegedly fired shots inside the apartment complex. He continued shooting after police arrived. 

Officers reportedly told the man to drop his gun "numerous" times, to which he did not respond. When the man reportedly fired at officers, three officers fired their weapons, striking the suspect.

The suspect was taken to an Indianapolis hospital in serious condition. His condition was later downgraded to critical, but police said he had stabilized.

No officers were injured.

Police said it is still not known why the man was shooting a gun in the apartment complex, but the officers were wearing body cameras that activated during the incident.

Investigators have identified everyone involved in the shooting and said there is no threat to the community.
