Grand jury opts not to charge 2 Indianapolis officers involved in April fatal shooting


INDIANAPOLIS — A grand jury has decided not to charge two Indianapolis police officers in the fatal shooting of a 36-year-old man following a traffic stop.

The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1KqPMQG ) reports the grand jury's decision was returned Tuesday in the April 12 shooting of Mack Long. According to police, Long was a passenger in a car that was pulled over, and he fled on foot.

Police say an officer chased Long. They wrestled over the officer's weapon at one point, and the gun went off.

Another officer arrived and ordered Long to the ground, and police say that officer fired his gun twice at Long when he refused. Long was pronounced dead by medics.

According to police, Long had a handgun that wasn't fired. His family has called for the release of video from the second officer's body camera.
