No Charges for IMPD Officers in Fatal Shooting of Aaron Bailey
INDIANAPOLIS -- A special prosecutor has decided not to file charges against two IMPD officers in the fatal shooting of Aaron Bailey in June.
Police say Bailey was driving just before 2 a.m. on June 29 when police pulled him over for a traffic violation near the intersection of Burdsal Parkway and Riverside Drive. During that stop, Bailey sped from the scene and crashed into a tree near the intersection of 23rd and Aqueduct streets.
After that crash, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said two officers fired "multiple" rounds at the vehicle, hitting Bailey. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
Police say no weapon was found inside the vehicle.
