LAWRENCE, Ind. -- The Marion County Coroner's Office identified a man killed in an officer-involved shooting Tuesday afternoon.

The deceased was identified as 28-year-old Jesse Scarsbrook.

Tuesday afternoon, officers from Lawrence Police Department responded to a reported robbery at Big Boy Hobbies in the 8800 block of Pendleton Pike. One suspect--Scarsbrook--left the scene in a black Ford Mustang and led police on a brief pursuit to 46th and Mithoeffer Road, where he crashed.

Authorities say Scarsbrook then carjacked a vehicle at that intersection and continued to flee. One passenger was trapped inside as the suspect drove off in the silver Lincoln.
