A judge on Wednesday reportedly appointed a special prosecutor to investigate a white police officer’s shooting of a black man in South Bend, Ind., an incident that has led to scrutiny for Mayor ‘s Democratic presidential campaign.

St. Joseph Circuit Court Judge John Broden named prosecutor Richard Hertel from Ripley County to run the investigation into the June 16 shooting death of Eric Logan, 54, according to the South Bend Tribune. County Prosecutor Ken Cotter said he wanted a special prosecutor in order to “avoid any appearance of impropriety, conflict of interest or influence upon the ultimate prosecutorial decision to be made.”
