Terre Haute police officer shot and killed; suspect still barricaded in apartment

Neither the officer's name nor the suspect's name has not been released.

Officer Pitts and three others entered the Garden Quarter apartment complex building and approached a suspect.

As they approached the apartment on Linwood Street just after 6:30 p.m., the officers were fired upon from a second-story window nearly immediately and they returned fire, police said.

Adamson says for those that would like to pay their respects, Officer Pitts will be moved from Regional Hospital to DeBaun Funeral home at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Gary Morris, who lives in a building catty-corner from the suspect's, said he saw the shooting.

Chief Plasse said he was present when the officer was killed. "We are praying for his family, friends, colleagues, and community".

Sgt. Joe Watts, a public information officer for the state police, said in a tweet at 8:50 p.m. that a suspect remained barricaded in the apartment but a female who had also been inside was out.

Terre Haute police confirmed the suspect's death during a news conference late Friday night.

The suspect was injured and medics on the scene were called to treat the man, Watts said. The suspect eventually died, but details were unclear.

The first call of a police officer down came over the scanners just before 6:30 Friday evening. "I would just ask that you keep our officers in our thoughts and prayers".

"It's one other tragic loss for the Wabash Valley and the Terre Haute Police Division", Sgt. Joe Watts of the Indiana State Police stated in saying the officer's dying.
