INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Several hundred police officers from around the country will be among the mourners at the funeral for an officer who authorities say was fatally shot by a man he was trying to help from an overturned car in Indianapolis.

The funeral for Southport police Lt. Aaron Allan is scheduled to begin 11 a.m. Saturday at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. It will be followed by a procession past the municipality’s police station on the south side of Indianapolis and back through downtown Indianapolis to Crown Hill Cemetery.

The 38-year-old Allan was married and the father of two sons.

Authorities say Allan was trying to assist 28-year-old Jason Brown after a July 27 car crash when Brown suddenly became agitated and opened fire, striking the officer 11 times. Brown faces murder charges.
