(PUTNAMVILLE) - Indiana State Police say an officer shot by a man during an exchange of gunfire is recuperating after being released from a hospital.

Lt. Jeff Hearon with the State Police's Putnamville post said Sunday that Cloverdale Officer Luke Brown was treated and released from a Terre Haute hospital following Saturday's shooting and "is doing fine."

Brown was shot in the chest Saturday afternoon when he arrived at a Greencastle residence to investigate a theft at a local store in the city about 40 miles west of Indianapolis. He was wearing a bulletproof vest.

State Police say Brown returned fire and struck the suspected gunman in the torso.
Hearon says the 48-year-old man who allegedly shot Brown remains hospitalized Sunday in Indianapolis. He did not know the suspect's condition.
