Indianapolis — An Indianapolis police officer is reported in good condition after being shot in the arm during a traffic stop in which an exchange of gunfire killed the car's driver.

Police say the wounded officer was taken to Methodist Hospital in good condition with a gunshot to his lower arm and wrist.
