NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — The Noblesville Police Department on Thursday released the body cam footage from the July 21 police shooting that left one man injured.
According to police, officers responded to a domestic battery report just before 5:30 a.m. in the 600 block of South Fifth Street but did not locate the suspect. Police said that they had responded to multiple disturbance calls that morning at that residence.
Police later made contact with the suspect, Karmen Parrish, 41, of Indianapolis, and his girlfriend as they were returning to the residence.
WARNING: Video contains graphic violence and strong language
The body cam footage shows Parrish walking towards officers, despite their orders to “get back” and “get on the ground.” Sergeant Jordan Granger, 35, a 10-year veteran of NPD, then fires his gun at the suspect.
Parrish was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital for treatment.
Granger was placed on administrative leave, but has since been reinstated to active duty.
Police did not find a suspect’s gun on the scene.
While this is an unfortunate ending to any public safety call for assistance, this type of incident is a difficult reality of policing and one which needs to be fully and professionally investigated both internally and by independent, outside agencies. The Noblesville Police Department has completed our own internal administrative investigation. The Carmel Police Department has conducted its own criminal investigation, and has turned over its findings to the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office for review. Throughout the process, our department has fully cooperated with the investigation.Noblesville Police Department
