INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The mother of a black man who was fatally shot by an Indianapolis police officer plans to call for an independent investigation of his death last month following a foot chase.

Demetree Wynn and her family’s attorneys said in a news release they would hold a news conference Wednesday in which they would call for an independent investigation of the May 6 killing of 21-year-old Dreasjon “Sean” Reed. They will also demand the release of the Marion County Coroner’s autopsy report and the disclosure of the names of officers involved in his shooting.

The family’s demands come at a time of nationwide protests over the treatment of black people by police following the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died May 25 after a white Minneapolis officer used his knee to pin down Floyd’s neck for several minutes while he pleaded for air.
