INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A grand jury has indicted two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers for shooting a Black man who was sleeping in a car parked outside his grandmother’s house. Marion County Prosecutor Ryan Mears said Friday that Officers Carl Chandler and Alexander Gregory were indicted on battery and criminal recklessness charges in connection with the Dec. 31 predawn shooting of Anthony Maclin on the city’s north side. Maclin’s attorney says the officers fired at least 30 shots, hitting his client three times and leaving him hospitalized for 17 days for six surgeries. The officers’ attorneys say evidence will establish the legality of their actions.
