Indianapolis officer fatally shot, gunman killed

INDIANAPOLIS —  Authorities say an Indianapolis police officer was fatally shot by a gunman who was then killed.

City police Lt. Christopher Bailey says the shooting happened about 2 a.m. Friday at an apartment complex on the city's northwest side after officers were called there for a disturbance.

Bailey says Officer Rod Bradway forced his way into an apartment after hearing a woman scream for help and was shot. The gunman was killed during an exchange of shots.

Bradway was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital where he died a short time later. Police say the woman wasn't injured.

Police Chief Rick Hite says Bradway was a brave officer who was acting to save a woman's life.

Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police president Bill Owensby says Bradway was married with two children.
