INDIANAPOLIS A veteran Indianapolis police officer died after he and another patrolman exchanged gunfire with a suspect in an alley Saturday night.

Officer Perry Renn, 51, was pronounced dead at a hospital at 9:58 p.m. Saturday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement early Sunday morning. Renn had been with the IMPD for nearly 22 years.

According to police, Renn and another officer responded to a call about shots being fired in the 3400 block of Forest Manor, went to the alley and approached a group of unidentified subjects. As officers approached, 25-year-old Major Davis Jr. of Indianapolis began shooting, prompting officers to return fire, police said.

Davis also was struck and remains in critical condition following surgery. Police said he is preliminarily charged with murder.

An investigation is ongoing.
