INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ City officials say they're dismayed by the second shooting of an Indianapolis police officer in five days.
 
Police say Officer Gregory Stevens has been released from a hospital after being shot in the leg early Tuesday in an exchange of gunfire with a man who was also wounded and is in custody. 
 
This shooting follows Friday's fatal shooting of Officer Rod Bradway by a gunman who was also killed.
 
Mayor Greg Ballard says to have two police officers shot in such a short time is shocking and heartbreaking.
 
Police Chief Rick Hite says Stevens has said he's ready to get back on the job.
