IMPD officers Michal Dinnsen and Carlton Howard shot and killed 45-year-old Aaron Bailey on June 29, 2017, after Bailey crashed into a tree during a high-speed car chase.

The shooting left an unarmed man dead and two officers under investigation. A special prosecutor found them innocent, and they received no criminal charges.

Indianapolis Police Chief Bryan Roach answered questions Wednesday about the decision not to file charges against officers who shot and killed Aaron Bailey in June. The shooting happened after Bailey crashed his car into a tree during a high-speed car chase.

St. Joseph County Prosecutor Kenneth Cotter has been named as special prosecutor to handle the investigation into the shooting death of Aaron Bailey by Indianapolis police.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says Cotter’s appointment was aimed at avoiding the appearance of conflict in the case.

He says he believes his office could handle the case but was worried about public perception.
