INDIANAPOLIS — Relatives of a man police say fatally shot an Indianapolis police officer trying to save a woman being held at gunpoint have released a statement expressing sympathy for the officer’s family.

Sunday’s statement by relatives of 24-year-old Steven Byrdo says they feel “great sadness” for Officer Rod Bradway’s family and extend their “heartfelt prayers and sympathy” to them. Bradway is a Nappanee native.

Police say Bradway kicked in an apartment door early Friday in response to screams by a woman Brydo was holding at gunpoint inside. Brydo was hiding behind that door and allegedly fatally shot Bradway as he entered to help the woman, who was Byrdo’s ex-girlfriend.

Byrdo was then fatally shot by police.

The 41-year-old Bradway was married with two children. His funeral is scheduled for Thursday at downtown Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
