According to Eyewitness News partners at The Indianapolis Star, the man shot and and killed by police on Sunday had worked with his female accomplice to set up and rob a 62-year-old man. When police tried to pull Justin Hall over, authorities say he refused to obey the officer's order.

"The suspect kept reaching for his gun and the fight continued. The end result was the suspect was shot multiple times," said Major Lloyd Crowe, IPD.
