According to a Fox59 journalist, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) has confirmed that a man was killed in the shooting and that “both officers and suspects” fired. They did not provide the victim’s name, but it is presumed to be Reed. The live broadcast continues after the shooting for a few minutes. In a clip from the live broadcast after the shooting, an alleged officer is heard saying, “Oh, did he actually get one?” and another alleged officer who says: “I think it will be a closed coffin.” The video continues for a few minutes until an officer approaches and turns it off.

The circumstances of the police chase and the shooting are still unclear. Heavy has contacted the IMPD for a statement, but has received no immediate response. According to local media, an IMPD public information officer confirmed that there was a shooting involving the police, but no police officer was shot during the incident. It happened around 6:20 p.m. near the intersection of West 62nd Street and North Michigan Road. The photos from the scene show a lot of police activity:

The clip starts with Reed driving his car while being chased by police. He then says, “What street is this? I’m going to park this motherf***er and get the f*** out.”
He then says he’s at 62nd and Michigan streets, and “somebody come get my stupid a**. Please come get me.”
Reed parks the car, grabs his phone and starts running. As he is running, an officer is heard in the background shouting at Reed. Reed then yells, “F*** you,” at which point he groans and drops his phone to the ground.
It’s unclear if Reed is tased or shot when he drops his phone. However, after someone in the background shouts “s**t,” gunshots are heard on the video. The clip ends with a police officer in the background, presumably on the radio, saying: “Police active shooting.”
Reed’s profile states that he is originally from Indianapolis, but lives in Fort Worth, Texas. His sister and niece also live in Indianapolis.
