African American family leaves Fishers after man says police racially profiled him

FISHERS, Ind. — A local father says it was time to move his family away from predominately white community where he felt his black family wasn’t welcomed.

Last month, Chris Sullivan says he was returning home from the gym in the Britton Ridge subdivision in Fishers when police approached him about a domestic disturbance call. He says police shined their light on him and asked what he was doing there. During the encounter, he was asked to show his ID and that’s when he says things escalated.
