LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3)– The man who was shot and killed by police near Louisville has been identified.

Bryan Arnold

Police say 30-year-old Djuantez Anthony Mitchell was shot after he hit Officer Bryan Arnold with his car in Jeffersontown on Wednesday.

Mitchell was being monitored in connection to a series of robberies in the area over the past week.

LMPD’s chief says the officer who shot Mitchell is normally a helicopter pilot, but was assisting in the investigation and therefore was not wearing a body-camera.

The Public Integrity Unit is investigating.
