Today IMPD Officer Dewey Runnels was shot during a routine traffic stop on Indy's east side. Dewey was fired upon several times by the driver of the vehicle, even though he was struck in the leg Dewey still returned fire killing the suspect. He is in good condition and will be released from the hospital tomorrow. Officer Runnels is a fine example of what IMPD stands for and needs to be commended.
"Chief Ciesielski visited the wounded officer in the hospital and said Runnels told him "this is what you pay me for." Runnels told Ciesielski that he's ready to get back on patrol."
