The suspect was killed, while Officer Pitts died at Terre Haute Regional Hospital.

In Terre Haute, Indiana, the 5-year-old son of a slain police officer received an overwhelming welcome for his first day back to school after his father's shooting death.

When he arrived at Sullivan Elementary, there were 70 IN police waiting outside to give Dakota his very own police escort to school. Then an officer presented the young LAD with his own SWAT shirt as he made his way to the door of Sullivan Elementary School.

His father Rob Pitts, a 16-year veteran with the force, was tragically killed on May 4 in a shootout aged 45.
