Wife: Slain Indianapolis-area officer was honored to serve

He says Brown was "hysterical" and Allan told Brown to be calm.

Brown was arrested on a preliminary murder charge, but police haven't given a possible motive. Bowman said he heard 10 or 12 gunshots followed by a lull, then two or three additional gunshots.

Jason Brown's social media pages appear to indicate he also had an interest in firearms.

Allan's patrol SUV was parked outside the Southport police station on Friday and was covered with flower bouquets left by residents. The Indiana police officers were forced to respond to the ongoing threat inside the auto while at the same time keeping citizens safely out of the line of fire. Marion County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Katie Carlson says Brown remained hospitalized Tuesday.

A "timid" tattoo artist shot and killed a Southport, Indiana police officer who was trying to untangle his body from the wreckage of a vehicle crash, law enforcement officials say.

The Fraternal Order of Police says visitation will take place at the Crown Hill Funeral Home on Friday, Aug. 4.

"Jason's just not a person who will go out here a wave a gun or shoot a cop", Wagner said.

Allan was a 20 year veteran of law enforcement, who had served the past six years on the Southport Police Department, in the enclave of Indianapolis.

Vaughn says the auto wasn't stolen and no warrants were pending for the man arrested in the shooting.

"The Southport Police Department is mourning the tragic loss of Lieutenant Aaron Allan who was killed in the line of duty after he was shot while trying to help", the department said in a statement.

Jason Brown, 28, was arrested at a hospital on a preliminary murder charge in the killing hours earlier of Southport police Lt. Aaron Allan. Police say two other officers returned fire and wounded a person inside the auto, which had flipped upside down near Southport, on Indianapolis' south side.

Those close to Brown say that's not who he is.

But the driver, 28-year-old Jason Brown, then allegedly shot Allan multiple times.

Indianapolis police spokesman Sgt. Kendale Adams said Brown and another person from the vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

"He had almost 20 years of law enforcement experience, including 6 years with the Southport Police Department", the GoFundMe page reads.

Detectives also talked to the passenger of the overturned vehicle, who said Brown began driving fast for an unknown reason when he hit the curb and went airborne.
