Indianapolis man charged in shooting at officer's home

July 14, 2016

An Indianapolis man who allegedly fired shots into a police officer's home as his wife and child slept inside has been charged with criminal recklessness and unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said Thursday in announcing the charges against 27-year-old March E. Ratney II that authorities "will not tolerate attacks on our public safety partners."

Ratney is being held without bond. He was released from prison on parole last month after serving nearly six years for unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious felon.

Police say Ratney shouted anti-police obscenities early Tuesday and fired several shots into the home and patrol car of an officer. The officer, his wife and child were not injured.
