INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department released video and dispatch audio Thursday that included footage of an officer shooting a man in the arm after two women were shot during an argument Sept. 20 at an east side apartment complex.

The video shows IMPD Officer Marshall Berkibile shooting and injuring the man as the man ran to his car.

IMPD Southeast District officers were called just before noon to the 4500 block of East Pleasant Run Parkway North Drive after dispatchers received reports of a confrontation between two groups of people. An argument continued for about 10 minutes before shots were fired just as two officers arrived at the scene.

Security camera video from the apartment complex showed a woman, identified as Keondra Bailey, firing a gun and hitting an 18-year-old woman in the arm. T'arel Jordan Justice, 20, who was standing outside away from the building, then shot a 38-year-old woman in the chest who was standing just outside the doorway.

Surveillance footage showed Justice running and getting into his car when Berkibile fired his gun and hit Justice in the right arm.

Justice and the two women who were shot were hospitalized in stable condition.

The video released by IMPD included video from a body camera worn by an officer who arrived to assist. The video showed him and other officers approaching Justice after he had been shot. The officer can be heard saying, "There's a shooter in that car. He just shot at us." IMPD Sgt. Grace Sibley said Justice did not fire at officers.

IMPD began distributing body cameras in August, but the Southeast District officers who initially responded had not received the equipment.

Police arrested Justice and Bailey following the incident. According to court records, prosecutors charged Justice with aggravated battery and resisting law enforcement.

Bailey is charged with aggravated battery. A judge issued a warrant for her arrest on Oct. 9, according to court documents.
