Protesters wrote statements and left flowers at the site of Tuesday’s deadly police shooting in Evansville.
After a vigil Tuesday night, authorities found statements written in chalk outside the federal building on Martin Luther King Blvd.
One read “bat vs. 2 guns = excessive force.” Another said “rest in power, Ricky Ard.”
Two police officers -- one an Evansville city cop, the other a federal officer – fatally shot the 55-year-old Ard in front of the building.
Police say Ard was swinging a baseball bat and breaking glass in the building’s front doors.
