Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers will not face charges in the shooting death of a young man last spring.
Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears made the announcement Friday afternoon in a written statement. It said after an extensive review of the May 7 incident with McHale Rose, the evidence indicates that the actions of the four IMPD officers do not meet Indiana’s legal standard to support criminal charges.
Rose, 19, was killed a few hours after Dreasjon Reed was shot during a Facebook live-streamed police chase in May.
Following months of protests and an investigation by a special prosecutor, it was announced officers in the Reed case would also face no charges.
Initial police reports indicated that Rose shot at officers when they arrived on scene of a call. Officers returned fire killing Rose.
