INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis police say a man has been shot in an officer-involved shooting.

Police Chief Troy Riggs says a man was trying to remove an officer’s gun from its holster when the shooting occurred Wednesday afternoon on the city’s east side. He says it’s not clear yet how the gun fired or how many shots were fired.

Police say the man is in serious condition at a hospital. No officers were hurt.

Police say the officer had been dispatched on a theft run when a domestic dispute began between a man and his daughter. A second man at the scene was the person shot.

No arrests have been made. The names of the officer and the man who was shot were not immediately released.
