Pete Buttigieg Demands a ‘Transparent Investigation’ into the Police Killing of Dreasjon Reed

Pete Buttigieg called for a demand for “an impartial and transparent investigation” into police shooting death of Dreasjon “Sean” Reed.

“Justice demands an impartial and transparent investigation of the killing of Sean Reed,” Buttigieg said in a Friday morning tweet. “Meanwhile we can’t act like this is one isolated incident after another. The problem is systemic, and the solutions must be too.”


The Indianapolis Star reported, “An officer with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department shot and killed Reed, 21, Wednesday night near the intersection of Michigan Road and West 62nd Street. The shooting set off a series of protests on Wednesday and Thursday. Reed was broadcasting on Facebook Live as police were chasing him prior to the shooting. Officers said Reed was driving recklessly and almost struck another car.”
