   Sergeant Heather Glenn was shot and killed while investigating a domestic dispute at the Perry County Memorial Hospital.

   She and other officers had responded after a female had gone to the hospital for injuries she received late Sunday.

   While being treated, she told hospital staff the 34-year-old suspect was en route and upon his arrival, Sergeant Glenn attempted to arrest him.

   An altercation ensued and Sergeant Glenn was shot and killed when other officers returned fire and killed the suspect before both died at the scene.

   Sergeant Glenn had previously served with the Perry County Sheriff's Department. She is single and survived by her parents, Robert and Jayne (née Claise); and brother, Jason (Brooke). Her father retired as a sergeant with the department.
