SPEEDWAY, Ind. — Charges will not be filed against a Speedway police officer who shot and killed a man on Feb. 12.
Special Prosecutor Chris Gaal said Officer Robby Harris was acting in self-defense when he shot De’Aire Gray. Gaal asked the State Police to investigate the shooting and return the results to him.
The shooting happened in the 5900 block of West 25th Street, near I-465.
Police were called about a suspicious car when they arrived they found De’Aire Gray near the car, and when they tried to talk to him he ran away.
Gray had a duffle bag and took out what was later determined to be a BB gun.
Gaal said in body cam recordings you can hear an officer shout, “He’s got a gun!” and then Officer Harris shouting, “You better drop it now. Drop it. Drop it. Drop it. What is it? Drop it. I want to talk to you. Drop it right now.”
Gray did not drop it. Body cam video shows Harris firing four shots.
Gray ended up in the hospital and died nine days later. The Marion County Coroner said Gray died from multiple gunshot wounds.
