Elkhart Mayor Tim Neese pledging transparency and urging patience and cooperation as the investigation into the police-involved shooting death of Norman Gary continues.
The Mayor issued a statement Wednesday addressing the issue.
“When a situation such as this occurs, it is human nature to want answers,” Neese says. “There is an obligation to present the facts to the public, however that will occur when all the facts are available… and in order for justice to be determined, the state police must be allowed to conduct their investigation.”
The shooting happened on Dec. 4, after officers were sent to the 500 block of Capitol Blvd. in regard to a burglary. During that investigation, officers heard sounds of gunfire coming from DeCamp Ave.
During an encounter with individuals leaving the DeCamp scene, officers fired their weapons at a car which crashed. Gary was inside the vehicle.
