INDIANAPOLIS — Several hundred police officers from around the state and nation have filed past the casket of a slain Indianapolis police officer as part of a day of funeral services Thursday, Sept. 26.

Ralph Tobias says he traveled to Indianapolis from Officer Rod Bradway’s northern Indiana hometown of Nappanee with a busload of other residents to pay their respects. Tobias says Bradway died as a hero when he was shot after kicking in an apartment door in response to screams from a woman held at gunpoint by an ex-boyfriend.

A police honor guard saluted Bradway’s widow and teenage son and daughter as they were escorted into the Bankers Life Fieldhouse before Thursday’s funeral. The service will be followed by a 20-mile procession through much of the city to Crown Hill Cemetery.
