Police officer killed Friday morning grew up in Nappanee

NAPPANEE, Ind. -- Indianapolis police officer Rod Bradway was shot and killed early Friday morning while responding to domestic dispute. Bradway grew up in Nappanee and attended school there.

Bradway had been on the police force in Indianapolis for 5 years.

At his former high school and middle school, coaches spoke about Bradway with fondness and admiration.

Bradway's former PE teacher Fred Myers says we lost someone truly special.

"If I was going to have a son I couldn't have asked for someone better than Rod was. The first time I saw him come in I knew he was someone special," said Myers.

Bradway is survived by his wife and two kids. He was just 41 years old.
