INDIANAPOLIS – The two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers who fatally shot Aaron Bailey in June have interviewed with the Internal Affairs detectives.
In a video released Thursday evening by IMPD Chief Bryan Roach, he said the interview the officers completed was connected to the administrative investigation of the case.
The criminal investigation was completed and turned over to the Marion County prosecutor and the civil rights investigation is still ongoing. The third investigation, administrative, is looking to see if the officers followed internal policy.
Police said 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 the 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 said no weapon was found inside the vehicle.
