Indiana Officers Escort Boy To School After His Dad's Murder

70 Indiana police officers escort son of fallen officer for first day back to school

WGNTV reports that Pitt's son, Dakota, returned back to school Monday in touching fashion.

The 5-year-old wore his father's police badge proudly and walked past the long line of officers.

The five-year-old son of an IN police officer who was killed while on duty has been given a special welcome back to school by his father's colleagues.

Pitts was killed in shootout with a suspect.

The officers gave Dakota gifts and told him they would always have his back.

"Our hope is that Dakota's first day back to school after his father's passing is one that he will remember forever and that he will always know how much his father's sacrifice meant to all of us", she added.

The park has seen rising violence in recent months, with armed gangs using weapons to steal resources, in particular charcoal. Virunga national park runs along the border with Uganda and Rwanda, and is a Unesco world heritage site.


All five-year-old Dakota Pitts asked for was to be taken to school by one of his dad's co-workers and friends. "And I think the blue family went above and beyond", Jones told WTHI. Wolfe was armed with a handgun and fired at the officers, striking Pitts.

He leaves behind son Dakota and another son and daughter. He and other officers approached Christopher Wolfe, 21, who died of a gunshot wound after barricading himself inside an apartment.

Wolfe was also killed in the gunfire exchange.

"It's a brotherhood", said Detective Les Hamm.
