US man live stream encounter with police on Facebook before gunned down

Residents gathered at the scene

Written by Angella Semu

Police are investigating the death of a 21 year-old Indianapolis Dreasjon Sean Reed who streamed live his last mile before he was shot dead by police.

Report by NBC news revealed that the deceased had been driving at speeds close to 90 miles per hour before officers in marked police vehicles noticed it and started chasing it.

The officers later called for backup which was ordered to end 10 minutes later due to the speed of the vehicle that Reed was driving before it was spotted by another officer on a city street pulling into a parking lot.

The deceased reportedly jumped out of the car while screaming for help before he was shot and pronounced dead shortly after.

According to police, Reed exchanged gunfire with the officer before he was gunned down and 15 shell casings were recovered from the scene.

The killing attracted protesters who visited the shooting scene, with many chanting, “No justice, no peace.”

Commenting on the matter, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Assistant Chief Chris Bailey said both the officer involved in the tragedy and the victim were black men and evidence made them believe that the officer did not act out of turn.

Sean Reed was described as a family man who spent a year in the Air Force and split his time between Texas and Indianapolis by his family.

Meanwhile, the officer involved has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation and police have petitioned the community to stay calm and allow police to thoroughly investigate the matter.
