Officers of the Terre Haute Police Department had initiated a homicide earlier in the day on 18th Street in Terre Haute.

As Officer Pitts and another officer approached the apartment, an individual began shooting at them from a second floor window with a rifle. Officers returned fire, but Officer Pitts was struck in the head. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he died from his wounds. The suspect was later found dead in the apartment.
