MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana State Police officer who fatally shot Glenn Rightsell did not have a dash or body camera equipped.

We reported that Rightsell was killed Friday, Dec. 28 working on his daughter's car on the side of the road, after the trooper said he reached for his waistband.

ISP Sergeant Kim Riley said none of the Indiana State Police Officers have body cams and only two ISP cop cars are equipped with dash cams, neither car belonging to the officer.

The officer has not been named, but is on administrative leave.

Sergeant Riley said once the investigation is complete, they'll turn the report over the the county prosecutor.

However, they have no timeline for that to be done.
