   Lieutenant Aaron Allan was shot and killed after responding to a single-vehicle accident where a car traveling at a high rate of speed had rolled over into the front yard of a home on Madison Avenue just north of Maynard Drive in Homecroft.

   He was assisting the Homecroft Police Department at the scene in which two male occupants were reportedly trapped in the vehicle. After Lieutenant Allan approached to render aid, the driver who was still trapped, opened fire striking him 11 times.

   A Homecroft officer and an off-duty reserve deputy with the Johnson County Sheriff's Department returned fire, wounding the 28-year-old driver who has been charged with murder and is awaiting trial. Motions for a change of venue and the death penalty have been made in the case. The 20-year-old passenger was later released.

   Lieutenant Allan was transported to Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis where he died.

   He had served with the Southport Police Department for six years. He had previously served as a jailer with the Marion County Sheriff's Department as well as a resource officer with the Indiana School for the Deaf and the Franklin Township Community Schools Police Department.

   Lieutenant Allan was survived by his wife, Stacy; 5-year-old son, Aaron Jr. and 18-year-old stepson, TJ; sister, Ryan; brother, Cory; father, James; mother, Laurie Lowery; and Shirley Childs, grandmother.
