This afternoon, a South Bend police officer responded to a call for service in the 2000 block of W. Western Avenue. In the course of the incident response, the officer was involved in a shooting. The officer was not injured. The Mayor is aware of the situation and receiving updates from law enforcement. As with all officer-involved shootings, the Metro Homicide Unit is conducting an investigation. During that process, any related updates will come from Metro Homicide. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this incident and their families.
