Several South Bend activists and a family member of Eric Logan expressed their frustration at the lack of changes following the police shooting of Logan on June 16. They also started a petition demanding that Mayor Pete Buttigieg recommend punitive action against the officer.

 

At the site where Eric Logan was fatally shot, activists called Sgt. Ryan O’Neill’s paid leave since the incident “unfair” to Logan’s family and to taxpayers.

  More than two weeks after the fatal shooting of a black man in South Bend by a white police officer, ministers from across the city gathered to call for spiritual guidance. They also gave Mayor Pete Buttigieg a packet of recommendations to begin healing the city.

 

A dozen ministers from congregations around South Bend prayed in the lobby of the County-City building Monday morning. Many pleaded for an end to the shootings in South Bend and called for citizens to pray for love, peace, and truth.

South Bend community groups have been asking for an independent review after a white police officer shot and killed 53-year-old Eric Logan. A special prosecutor has now been requested to review the case.

 

St. Joseph County Prosecutor Ken Cotter filed paperwork asking for the appointment of a special prosecutor. Circuit Court Judge John Broden has granted that request, but has not yet assigned a prosecutor.
