Of­fi­cer slain while aid­ing at crash

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — A po­lice of­fi­cer had no rea­son to sus­pect he was in dan­ger be­fore he was fa­tally shot while try­ing to help two peo­ple in­side an over­turned car in a yard along a busy In­di­anapo­lis street, his chief said Fri­day.

Po­lice ar­rested 28-yearold Ja­son Brown of In­di­anapo­lis on a mur­der charge re­gard­ing the killing Thurs­day of South­port po­lice Lt. Aaron Al­lan, 38. Au­thor­i­ties haven’t dis­closed a pos­si­ble mo­tive for the at­tack or de­scribed the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween Al­lan and the car oc­cu­pants once he reached the crash scene just out­side of South­port, a mu­nic­i­pal­ity that is also part of In­di­anapo­lis.

In­di­anapo­lis po­lice said two other of­fi­cers, in­clud­ing one who was off-duty, re­turned fire and shot one of the peo­ple in the car, but they didn’t spec­ify whether it was Brown. Brown and the other per­son in the car suf­fered non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries, po­lice spokesman Sgt. Ken­dale Adams said Fri­day.
