Where's My Daddy?

This little boy is without a father because of a wrongful shooting. His father was unarmed and was shot by police.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 5, 2016)-- Police say an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer fatally shot a male suspect Tuesday night on the near east side.
Officers were called to the Marathon gas station at East 10th Street and North Rural Street around 9:05 p.m. on a report of a disturbance. Five minutes later, there was a report of a gunshot at that location.
According to police, a woman called 911 to report she was being attacked inside a vehicle. A physical altercation between the man and the officer led to the shooting. IMPD believes the suspect was not armed.
A young child was in the car at the time of the shooting, and was not injured.
There are several surveillance cameras on the outside of the gas station, however, investigators are still trying to determine what was  recorded.  IMPD is promising the public transparency throughout the investigation.
"We will involve the community and we will be transparent and share information as we know it," said Valerie Cunningham, Deputy Chief of Patrol for IMPD.
An IMPD officer was seen by a FOX59 reporter leaving in an ambulance with a splint or bandage around his arm and hand. He was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital.

The officer involved in the incident is a six-year veteran and will be placed on leave as the investigation continues.

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me...
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Loving Presence

          I may not know what the future holds for me, yet I do know what good waits for me in the unknown: God is there. Whereever I go, God's spirit is within me and goes before me.
       Becoming quiet, I allow muself to experience the loving presence of God with every fiber of my being. Knowing that God will never forsake me, I am relieved of fear and anxiety.
       God is powerful enough to have created the sun, the moon, and the stars, and to have sent mighty rivers surging across the ground to forge immense canyons. Yet God is gentle enough to have created the delicate petals of a fragile flower. God create me, and being a part of God's majesty greatly blesses me.

As I quiet my thoughts, I experience the loving presence of God
