Hundreds Attend Justice for Aaron Bailey Rally at Statehouse
INDIANAPOLIS -- Hundreds of people gathered on the Statehouse lawn Saturday afternoon to demand justice for Aaron Bailey.
A representative from the organization "Don't Sleep" demanded the termination of the officers and encouraged the crowd to call Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry and demand the appointment of a special prosecutor.
Both officers have been placed on administrative leave which is standard protocol with any officer-involved shooting investigation.
In addition, the speaker said rally organizers must hold the mayor and police accountable and ensure they make good on their promises.
Bailey's sister, Kimberly Brown, and daughter, Erica, thanked the community for supporting their family.
In June, IMPD officers pulled Aaron Bailey over for a traffic violation and Bailey sped from the scene then crashed into a tree.
Two officers fired "multiple" rounds at the vehicle following the crash, hitting Bailey. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
No weapon was found inside the vehicle.
