Two suspects are in custody and a third is on the loose after an armed robbery at a north-side Indianapolis AutoZone.

Officers arrived at 5455 N. Keystone Ave. at approximately 9:25 p.m. Friday on reports of a possible armed robbery in progress. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department set up a perimeter around the AutoZone and observed three people exit the building while wearing clothing that concealed their faces.

Officers confronted the suspects, who were armed with handguns, according to IMPD. One officer fired two shots. It isn’t clear whether any of the suspects were hit. No officers were injured.

One suspect fled in a car, but crashed at East 55th St. and North Oxford St. after a short chase and was taken into custody.

The other two suspects ran away. Police captured one, but the other has not been found.

Police did not immediately provide descriptions or identities of the suspects.

Police recovered cash, which they say was stolen from the AutoZone, but did not specify the total or say whether more money might be missing.

Police did not release the name of the officer who fired at the suspects. That officer will be on administrative leave during the investigation.
