September 27, 2018

A man who was shot by a Warsaw police officer has been charged with resisting law enforcement.

Kyle Miller, 31, of Warsaw, faces the felony charge after he was shot in the arm by officer Daniel Clemens during a struggle Wednesday night in Warsaw, Indiana State Police said.

State police are investigating the shooting.

Clemens, who has been a Warsaw police officer since December, has been placed on administrative leave as part of standard police department policy, state police said.

Warsaw police were called at 7:26 p.m. to investigate an unwanted party in the 1800 block of Michaels Street. The person was unknown to the residents in a home and left before police arrived. He began to walk in traffic on Old Road 30, also known as Lake Street, state police said.

The man, later identified as Miller, was trying to get into cars that were passing by when Clemens confronted him, police said.

During the encounter, Miller began struggling with the officer, who tried to use his Taser stun gun. The stun gun had no effect on Miller and Clemens fired his gun, hitting Miller in the arm. Miller received non-life-threatening injuries, state police said.

Officers stabilized the scene and rendered aid to Miller before Lutheran EMS’ arrival, state police said.
