Fox News Reports that around 2 am Shahnavaz stopped suspect Carl Roy Webb Boards II, who got out of his 2012 Buick LaCrosse, opened fire on the officer, and then fled the scene.

Shahnavaz, who was struck at least once by the gunfire, was rushed to an Indianapolis-area hospital where he later died.
