Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said he abruptly changed his campaign schedule to return home to South Bend, Ind., where he serves as mayor, after a man died in a police-involved shooting.
The Associated Press reports Buttigieg returned to South Bend on Sunday and held a late-night press conference to address the incident.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We will be striving to reach out to community members,” Buttigieg said, according to the AP, adding that a thorough investigation was underway after officers responded to reports early Sunday morning of a person going through cars.
The St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office, which is investigating the incident, told the AP that a police officer confronted the man in an apartment complex’s parking lot when the man approached the officer wielding a knife. The officer reportedly shot and killed the man, later identified as South Bend resident Eric Logan.
