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

The officers’ contact with Aaron Bailey began during a traffic stop about 1:45 a.m. June 29 near Burdsal Parkway and East Riverside Drive, according to police. This is how authorities described the incident:

About 10 minutes after the officers stopped Bailey’s car, Bailey and his passenger, 26-year-old Shiwanda Ward, suddenly took off. A police chase ensued, but after about a minute, Bailey crashed his sedan into a fence near the intersection of 23rd and Aqueduct streets.

Both officers approached the car, and both officers subsequently fired their weapons. Bailey was pronounced dead at Eskenazi Hospital 30 minutes later. Ward was uninjured.

A warrant recently had been issued for Bailey’s arrest after he violated the terms of his release on a pending theft case filed in early February.

It remains unclear why Bailey was pulled over, why he drove away from officers and what he and the officers said to one another during their contact. What prompted the shooting remains unclear.

IndyStar sent IMPD a list of 13 questions Thursday night on matters such as the number of times Bailey was hit, how many shots each officer fired and where the officers were in relation to the car. A department spokesman said those details remain part of the ongoing investigation. The department then issued a statement:

“Aaron Bailey’s death continues to be a tragic incident for our community and our department. IMPD is committed to being as transparent as the law allows, and upon completion of the ongoing criminal investigation by the Marion County prosecutor’s office, we are prepared to move expeditiously with our own internal review.”

Dorsey again called for the officers’ termination, for charges to be brought without a grand jury and for a special prosecutor.
