Buttigieg to seek outside investigations of police shooting

RICHMOND VIRGINIA- JUNE 15 Democratic presidential candidate and Mayor of South Bend Indiana Pete Buttigieg speaks at the 2019 Blue Commonwealth Gala fundraiser

Eleven people were shot at a South Bend bar Sunday, just hours before mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg addressed issues in his northern in city.

The shooting of Eric Jack Logan, who police alleged was breaking into cars and wielding a knife when he was shot by officer Ryan O'Neill last Sunday, has roiled the IN community, putting the spotlight on years of racial tension between the South Bend Police Department and the city's African American residents.

During the tense event, Buttigieg tried to explain how officers will review the shooting and said he would ask the Justice Department to review the case and for an independent prosecutor to look into it as well.

"The effort to recruit more minority officers to the police department and the effort to introduce body cameras have not succeeded and I accept responsibility for that", Buttigieg said.

According to South Bend Police, one person is dead and as many as 10 people have been injured.

A resident seen at a town hall hosted by South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sun., June 23, 2019.

The government's website says the event was meant to 'outline the process for officer-involved shooting investigations and hearings before the Board of Public Safety'. The police department is nearly 90 per cent white.

"It is very tough to believe the left arm of a police department telling you what the right arm did wrong", he said.

"I just think it is my job", Buttigieg said.

"There's more momentum to deal with this than ever", he said. "I don't know if it is smart or not".

"We've taken a lot of steps, but they clearly haven't been enough", Buttigieg said to shouts of, "We don't trust you!" from the audience.

The town hall was interrupted frequently by outbursts and heckling. When O'Neill arrived on scene, he claims, Logan was holding a knife and lunged at him with it, causing O'Neill to fatally discharge his weapon.

Another man approached the stage to yell at Buttigieg and South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski, ignoring the moderator's attempts to restore order. The investigators said O'Neill's body camera wasn't automatically activated because he was driving slowly without emergency lights while looking through an apartment building parking lot.
