Friends, family remember South Bend man fatally shot by police

Friends and family of a man fatally shot by police in South Bend are recalling him as caring and thoughtful.

WNDU-TV reported Eric Logan’s friends and family gathered Saturday to say goodbye at a celebration of his life.

Friend Vernado Malone said Logan was a person who would have always lent a hand, like if you had a flat tire.

Logan, a black man, was fatally shot June 16 by a police officer in a case that’s generated national headlines.

Authorities said Logan was armed with a knife when he approached the officer. The officer, Sgt. Ryan O'Neill, remains on paid administrative leave.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who's seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, had to pull himself off the campaign trail for several days to answer questions about public safety and race.
