Police have sealed off a central Indiana town as they search for a man suspected in a shooting that wounded two police officers.

State Police Sgt. John Bowling says motorists should avoid the town of Pendleton during Friday's manhunt. He says an Anderson police officer is being treated at an Indianapolis hospital for a non life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg following Thursday night's shooting in Pendleton.

Madison County Emergency Management spokesman Todd Harmeson tells WTHR-TV a Pendleton police officer whose police dog died in the shooting was grazed in the neck by a bullet but returned to duty to help in the search for the suspect in the town 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

Bowling says the shooting occurred as officers responded to a reported disturbance.
