A western IN police officer has been fatally shot, and officers have surrounded an apartment complex where they believe the suspect remains at large.

As they approached the apartment on Linwood Street, the officers were fired upon nearly immediately and they returned fire, city Police Chief John Plasse said.

No information was immediately available about the male officer who was killed at the Garden Quarter apartment complex.

Indiana State Police Criminal Investigation Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators continue to investigate the death of Pitts and the suspect.

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.

A police officer slain Friday in Terre Haute, Ind., was investigating a homicide, authorities said. But the suspect immediately opened fire from the second floor and hit the officer.

The suspect who was also wounded, managed to barricade themselves in the building for several hours. At 9:23 p.m., Watts said the suspect had been detained and was injured.

During the standoff officials called the area unsafe and urged residents to avoid it. Watt said state police will conduct an investigation into the events leading up to the fatal shooting.

Terre Haute police and police from other agencies surrounded the building in the Garden Quarter apartment complex on the city's south side shortly after the shooting, Adamson said.
