In Indianapolis an officer was shot and killed on Thursday after responding to a domestic incident.

24 year old Officer Breann Leath responded to a domestic incident at an apartment located at 1803 Edinburge Square. She was shot at the scene. First Responders rushed her to Eskenazi Hospital where she ultimately died.

Officer Leath comes from a law enforcement family. Her father is a deputy with Marion County Sheriff’s Office and her mother is a 911 dispatcher.

She graduated from Southport High School, served as a National Guard and is also a mother. She had been IMPD for two years. The mayor is asking that flags be lowered to half staff in honor of her.

On Thursday evening the Indiana governor issued a statement regarding Officer Leath’s death

“Officer Leath gave her life as she answered the call of duty. Janet and I are heartbroken for her family, friends and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. I ask every Hoosier to join me in honoring Officer Leath’s courageous service and dedication to her community. She will be forever remembered for being the finest among us.”
– Governor Eric Holcomb

Officer Leath is the 4th IMPD officer killed in the line of duty in the past nine years.

Currently the suspect is in custody

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Officer Leath
