Indianapolis police fatally shot a black man

An Indianapolis man was fatally shot by police on Wednesday following a high-speed chase, and in Facebook Live footage of the incident, someone can be heard mocking the man's dead body.

Family identified the man who was shot by officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department as 21-year-old Sean Reed, according to the Indianapolis Star. The police department has not publicly identified the victim or the officer who shot him, but told the Washington Post they are both black men.

Reed was apparently broadcasting a Facebook Live at the time of the incident, which was later recorded by viewers and posted to social media. One viewer's recording captured a conversation, seemingly between police officers at the scene, though it remains unclear who's talking.

"I think it's going to be a closed casket, homie," one person says in the recording.

Chris Bailey, a police spokesman, told reporters on Wednesday that the police department is aware of the video.

"Both the officers and the detectives have done their due diligence in preserving that evidence through the proper legal channels, and if it's associated that there's information on there that's appropriate for the investigation, they'll utilize it," he said.
