ELWOOD, IN– An Indiana Police officer is dead after a suspect opened fire on him during a traffic stop.
The incident was reported in Madison County around 2:00 a.m. on Sunday.
Officials say the driver pulled over for the officer, but then got out of his vehicle and began shooting:
“For an unknown reason, the suspect exited the Buick and fired multiple rounds striking the officer at least one time. Before additional officers arrived, the suspect fled from the scene,” the Indiana State Police said in a news release.
The officer, identified as 24-year-old Officer Noah Shahnavaz was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.
Investigators were able to track down the suspect identified as 42-year-old Carl Roy Webb Boards II, and have taken him into custody.
Madison County Chief Prosecutor Andrew Hanna reported that his office plans to file several charges against Boards Monday, including murder.
Authorities say Shahnavaz was a 5-year Navy Veteran and had joined the force 11 months ago.
