Autopsy Shows Unarmed Man Killed by 2 IMPD Officers Was Shot in the Back 4 Times.

The family of Aaron Bailey said Thursday that an autopsy report shows the unarmed motorist killed by two Indianapolis police officers was shot in the back four times.

Bailey, 45, was unarmed when he was shot and killed by Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers following a short pursuit that ended in a crash near 23rd and Aqueduct streets on the city’s north side in the early morning hours of June 29.

During a Thursday news conference, Bailey’s sister, Kimberly Brown, and his daughter, Erica Bailey, joined Dominic Dorsey and Satchuel Cole of social justice advocacy organization DONT SLEEP to discuss some of the details of Bailey’s autopsy report.

The family said they believe nearly a dozen bullets struck the car. They highlighted the autopsy report, describing four gunshot wounds in Bailey’s back. Autopsy reports are not public record in Indiana.

Sitting near the site of the crash, Brown cried.

“I know I have to be strong, but it’s hard sitting here because I know that’s where my brother’s life ended,” Brown said. “And it’s not fair.”

Cole, vice president of DONT SLEEP, said 42 days is far too long to go without hearing a statement from the officers.

“There is zero transparency from IMPD,” she said. “Absolutely none.”

IMPD and the Marion County prosecutor’s office are conducting parallel investigations of the incident. The officers involved, Michal P. Dinnsen and Carlton J. Howard, have been placed on administrative leave pending the results of those investigations.

In the weeks following the shooting, IMPD Chief Bryan Roach and Mayor Joe Hogsett have maintained the city would be as transparent as possible during the investigation. IMPD also has asked the FBI to conduct a separate investigation of the incident. The agency has since opened a civil rights investigation.
