INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities in southern Indiana have taken a suspect into custody after an hours-long standoff during which a police officer was wounded and a K-9 unit apparently was killed.
The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., (http://cjky.it/1aJerOc) reports late Monday that Sellersburg Police Chief Russ Whelan says the suspect was taken into custody and was not injured. The suspect was not identified, and Whelan says formal charges are pending.
Indiana State Police say an officer was being treated for nonlife-threatening injuries after being shot in the leg earlier in the day during the standoff. A police dog that was sent into the house did not return and police earlier said they believed it had been killed.
