India Beaty was shot and killed by Norfolk police on Saturday, March 19, 2016. Norfolk Police were staking out an Ocean View parking lot doing an undercover operation. Police claim that they saw India Beaty who was not involved in their investigation pull a gun on an unarmed man. They shot her without any warning or even announcing themselves. 25-year-old India Beaty had a non-firing replica handgun. She died at the scene where police murdered her. 

India’s father McKinley Beaty Sr., and her sister, Kendra Beaty, said they don’t believe India had a gun. “Her automatic reaction would have been to drop and say ‘it’s not real.’ She would not have gone to jail over a toy gun,” her sister said.
