CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

An Indianapolis Police officer is waking up behind bars in Cincinnati, after he allegedly shot a fellow cop and fled the scene.

FOX59 in Indianapolis has identified the suspect as Adrian "Scott" Aurs.

The incident started around 8:30 p.m. Friday as a domestic violence call, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. We're told the estranged wife of Aurs called for help. 

Police arrived at Aurs' apartment in Indianapolis, but he was not there. 

We're told an investigator arrived on scene about an hour later for a follow-up interview.

Capt. Richard Riddle, with the IMPD, said that's when Aurs returned to his apartment and opened fire.

"Our on-duty detective that was doing the investigation was shot in the arm. We don’t know if he was struck a second time or whether that bullet passed through and went into his back," said Capt. Riddle.

The estranged wife and their children were inside the apartment during the shooting. They were not hurt.

The detective returned fire but did not struck Aurs.

Aurs then fled the scene and headed for Cincinnati. He was stopped near the Brent Spence bridge and taken into custody.

Indianapolis authorities are on their way to Ohio to continue their investigation.

Aurs is an 18 year veteran of the force. He has been suspended without pay, pending termination.

The detective who was shot is believed to be in good condition.
