Officers shot 36-year-old Jessie Leonard during an incident on Eugene Street Sept. 24.
IMPD chief Randal Taylor has revealed the names of the officers involved in a shooting that killed a woman on the north side Sept. 24.
Four officers were identified:
Keith Shelton, a seven-year veteran
Joshua Smith, a three-year veteran
Joseph Reynolds, a two-year veteran
Dylan Sheets, a two-year veteran
In line with department policy, Taylor’s release of the names comes after a threat assessment in order to protect officers’ families.
While officers were securing the car for it to be towed, they noticed Leonard on the porch of a nearby home. As officers approached to talk to her, they claim she showed a gun.
IMPD said the officers told Leonard not to touch or make any movement toward the gun. According to police, she then reached for the gun and began pulling it out. That’s when the four officers shot her.
