The Fishers Police Department is investigating an attempted residential burglary and several thefts from vehicles that occurred in the Windermere Neighborhood during the early morning hours of Sunday, June 28, 2015.
Just before 2:30am on Sunday morning a resident in the 10900 block of Fairwoods Drive (Windermere Boulevard and Fairwoods Drive) called 911 to report someone was attempting to break into his home. The homeowner described the suspect as a male wearing a gray sweatshirt and black pants. The homeowner last observed the suspect running southwest in the direction of Bent Creek Court.
Fishers police officers responded and established a perimeter. A police K-9 was quickly deployed and began tracking towards Bent Creek Court. As the K-9 unit and support team arrived on Bent Creek Court they observed a silver Kia Forte passenger car leaving the area. Officers identified themselves and ordered the driver to stop the car. The driver stopped the car momentarily, but as officers approached the driver revved the engine and rapidly accelerated towards the officers. Fearing for his safety and the safety of his fellow officers, one of the officers fired one round from his duty weapon towards the suspect vehicle. The suspect vehicle continued fleeing. Officers were able to jump out of the car’s path and avoid being struck.
A short time later the Kia was observed traveling in the area of Glen Abbey Lane and Windermere Boulevard. Officers used their patrol cars to block the path of the suspect vehicle. Officers conducted a felony stop and safety detained two adults and three juveniles. No officers or suspects were injured in this incident.
All five occupants of the Kia were transported to the Fishers Police Department and interviewed by Detectives. Upon the completion of the interviews it became apparent that these individuals were not involved in the original burglary call. The driver and an adult passenger were arrested and transported to the Hamilton County Jail. Two juvenile passengers were issued a summons arrest for Illegal Consumption of Alcohol by Minor “A” Misdemeanor and released to their parents.
Evidence Technicians responded to process the scene and recovered the round in the asphalt near the area of the shooting. Investigators have obtained video footage of the person responsible for the thefts from vehicles. Anyone with information regarding this case should contact the Fishers Police Department at 317-595-3300. This case remains under investigation and additional charges may be filed in the future.
