LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police have identified the officer who was shot in the foot while responding to a report about a suspicious man trying to open doors.
Media outlets report that according to a statement from the LMPD, Officer Brad Shouse was shot Wednesday night. The suspect, 24-year-old Dimitri Harris, was arrested Thursday on an outstanding warrant.
Police say that while responding to the call, Shouse saw a man — later identified as Harris — who fit the description of the suspect and tried to stop him. Harris fled on foot, and Shouse chased after him. Police say that when Shouse turned a corner he was shot.
Shouse was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Charges against Harris are forthcoming. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
