Protests continue after Dreasjon Reed killed by police in Indianapolis last week

A group of protesters held signs, and chanted, at the corner of 62nd Street, and Michigan Road, Tuesday, a few hours after Dreasjon Reed’s family vowed during a press conference to fight. Reed was killed by an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer last Wednesday during a Facebook livestream. The IMPD doesn’t have body cams.
