FBI Opens Investigation Into Aaron Bailey Shooting For Possible Civil Rights Violations


INDIANAPOLIS — The Federal Bureau of Investigation has opened an investigation into potential Civil Rights violations in the shooting death of Aaron Bailey by two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers.

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 before he crashed into a tree near the intersection of 23rd and Aqueduct streets.

After that crash, two officers fired “multiple” rounds at the vehicle, hitting Bailey. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

No weapon was found inside the vehicle.

The circumstances surrounding what led up to the shots being fired have not been released.

IMPD Chief Bryan Roach had asked the FBI to run a parallel investigation into the officer-involved shooting. The FBI found enough to open the investigation into potential Civil Rights violations.
