Indianapolis man fatally shot by police in raid

INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis’ public safety director says a man fatally shot by police as officers served a warrant allegedly watched their approach on a suspected drug house’s surveillance cameras.

Police say 27-year-old Andrew Sizemore of Indianapolis died Wednesday night when officers returned fire after Sizemore allegedly shot and wounded four SWAT officers.

None of those officers suffered life-threatening injuries, but Sizemore died in the exchange of gunfire.

Indianapolis Public Safety Director Troy Riggs says Sizemore apparently watched approaching police on surveillance cameras. He says the house was heavily protected and set up to sustain the suspects’ drug-selling operations.

Riggs tells The Indianapolis Star ( ) “that put our officers at a disadvantage, but they overcame it.”

Police arrested five people inside the house and confiscated heroin, 13 guns and $126,000 in cash.
