VIDEO: Indianapolis Officer Shot, Killed in Alley Gun Battle

An Indianapolis police officer was fatally shot late Saturday after he and another officer exchanged gunfire with a suspect in an alley. 

Officer Perry Renn, 51, was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly before 10 p.m. local time. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Lt. Christopher Bailey said Officer Renn was with the IMPD for nearly 22 years.

With voices cracking and anger seething, Mayor Greg Ballard, Public Safety Director Troy Riggs and Police Chief Rick Hite said 21-year veteran patrolman Perry Renn had been shot and killed in an Eastside alley.

Police Chief Rick Hite told the Indy Star, "Tonight we are here because we have lost one of our own. Perry Renn was a very fine and courageous officer."

Renn and two other officers responded to a report of shots fired at 34th Street and Forest Manor Avenue at 9:23 p.m. When they arrived, police said, the officers encountered Major Davis, Jr., 25, who was brandishing an assault rifle. The police and Davis exchanged gunfire for three to five minutes. Davis was struck and critically wounded.

I feel for the fellow officers and the family of this fallen officer.
But could the news source of the story please learn how to utilize the spell checker??? The word is Spelled "Alley" Look it up. I'm sure the family would appreciate an accurate account of what happened.

Mr. Kolkow, Thank you spell check police. If that is all you have to say, comment somewhere else. Perhaps some well deserving educator's blog.

Rest in peace, brother, thank you for standing in the gap.
