INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The wife of an Indianapolis-area police officer who was fatally shot while trying to help people inside an overturned car says her husband was honored to serve in law enforcement.
Stacy Allan released a statement Sunday offering thanks for the outpouring of support since Southport police Lt. Aaron Allan was killed Thursday.
She says: "There is no room in my heart for anger or hate, only peace knowing Aaron died doing what he loved."
Police arrested a 28-year-old Indianapolis man on a preliminary murder charge in Aaron Allan's death. Authorities haven't disclosed a possible motive.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department announced details of Allan's funeral and vistation on Saturday. The visitation will be Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Crown Hill Funeral Home in Indianapolis. His funeral will be the next day, Saturday, Aug. 5, at 11 a.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Aaron Allan was a 38-year-old father of two. Stacy Allan asks for people to "demonstrate peace and support to our officers and first responders."
