Police responded to a Kohl’s at 10353 Indianapolis Blvd. around 2 p.m. after a man had been allegedly observed shoplifting from the store for a third time, Commander John Banasiak wrote in a statement on the department’s Facebook page.

Police found the man near a silver Ford Escape in the parking lot and an officer then got into an altercation with the car’s driver, Banasiak wrote. Another officer fired shots into the Escape, shooting the driver in the arm, he wrote.
