INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The family of an Indianapolis police officer killed in the line of duty is expressing its thanks to the community for its support.

A statement issued by Officer Perry Renn’s family Thursday says the outpouring of cards, letters and other shows of gratitude “has been immensely uplifting” in the days since Renn was killed.

Renn died July 5 after being shot while responding to a report of shots fired. Police say 25-year-old Major David Jr. was armed with an assault rifle and traded fire with officers.

Davis was wounded in the exchange of gunfire. He has been released from the hospital and is charged in Renn’s death.

Prosecutors say they are considering seeking the death penalty for Davis.
