Thursday afternoon an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officer, Breann Leath, was fatally shot while on duty. She was responding to a call involving domestic violence on the east side.

Leath, who was only 24-years-old, was lifelong Indianapolis resident who graduated from Southport High School. She also was a member of the Army National Guard.

After making the announcement shortly after her passing, Chief Randall Taylor said, “She is the example of the type of officer we want in this department.”

Fellow officers and loved ones placed a sign outside IMPD’s East District headquarters Thursday night to honor Leath. “We love our hero,” the sign read. Friday, a procession was held for Breann.
