INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A woman accused of shooting and killing a man in downtown Indianapolis in January won’t be charged.

Metropolitan police say the woman was in a car with 37-year-old Phillip Sullivan when she asked him several times to get out near the intersection of Pennsylvania and Michigan.

According to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, Sullivan tried to grab the woman’s gun from her when a physical altercation broke out between them in the vehicle.

Prosecutors say the gun then went off once during the struggle, killing Sullivan.

Police believe the man and woman were in some sort of relationship.

The woman has not been identified, but prosecutors say she has a valid Indiana license to carry.
