INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Hundreds of people gathered on the Statehouse lawn Saturday afternoon to demand justice for Aaron Bailey.

Bailey was shot and killed by two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers on June 29.

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.

On Friday, Mayor Joe Hogsett announced that IMPD would be changing several policies to improve transparency and community relations. Changes will also be made to the department's training program.
