CRAWFORDSVILLE — State Police say there’s no body or dash camera video of a state trooper’s fatal shooting of a man along a western Indiana highway.
Police spokesman Sgt. Kim Riley said Monday the cruiser driven by the trooper who shot 56-year-old Glenn A. Rightsell of Linden didn’t have a dash camera, and Indiana’s state troopers aren’t equipped with body cameras.
Police say the trooper shot Rightsell after he failed to follow his orders and allegedly grabbed a handgun on his own waist Friday night.
The shooting occurred outside an abandoned sport-utility vehicle the trooper had tagged hours before along U.S. 231 in Montgomery County.
Rightsell’s nephew, Matt Clark, tells the Journal & Courier his uncle was working on his daughter’s stalled SUV and he always carried a gun on his belt.
