We regret to announce the line-of-duty death of Terre Haute, Indiana Police Officer Rob Pitts.
While investigating a homicide from earlier in the day on Friday, officers were led to an apartment complex on the city's south side at approximately 6:30 P.M. As Officer Pitts and another officer approached an apartment a suspect began firing with a rifle from an upstairs window. Officer Pitts was struck once in the head and died from his injuries a short time later at a nearby hospital.
Please keep the Pitts and Terre Haute law enforcement families in your thoughts and prayers.
