CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (Dec. 10, 2013)– After nearly a two-week investigation by the Indiana State Police, the Crawfordsville Police Incident Review Board met Tuesday morning to discuss the shooting which took place in Crawfordsville on Nov. 23.

On that date, Crawfordsville Police Department Corporal Jason Spires was involved in a police shooting when he fired his weapon which struck Mauricio Serrano in the R.R. Donnelley Parking lot on Wabash Avenue around 10:30 a.m.
