One volunteer Indiana police officer responding to a traffic accident just one week ago found himself being gunned down on Thursday by one of the injured occupants involved in the accident, according to officials’ statements.

The police officer was identified as Lt. Aaron Allen, 38, a six-year vet of Southport, however, still had more than 20 years of experience on the job. He was the departments officer of the year back in 2015, according to the Washington Post.

“It is with a heavy heart that I say this afternoon we lost a brother, Lt. Aaron Allan,” SPD Chief Thomas Vaughn said. “Lieutenant Allan was a hard worker, and today was no different. He responded to a crash with urgency to preserve life. Tragically, his was lost.”

Jason Brown, 28, was one of the young men taken into custody over the shooting of the officer and is now facing a preliminary murder charge, according to a police report that was filed at the scene.

Though the motive has yet to be disclosed, many are still saddened by the death of this officer, whom was said to have just arrived to do his job.

What are your thoughts on this news? Do you think the officer may have pushed the suspect to the limit? Or was it all just a huge misunderstanding?

In the wake of police brutality, I must admit, this is a tough one.
