INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Marion County grand jury is not indicting the officers involved in the investigation of a man shot and killed by two officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

The grand jury met twice while investigating the death of Mack Long, 36.

The coroner’s office said Long died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Police officials said shots were exchanged with a suspect and two IMPD officers. Both officers were grazed by a bullet.

Long was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to IMPD, the incident started as a traffic stop. Then Long got out of the car and fled on foot. An officer pursuing the suspect noticed they had a gun.

The officer in pursuit of Long and a second officer, who was called in for backup, were involved in a scuffle when gunfire was exchanged.
