  • 5-year-old son of fallen Terre Haute officer shares message for his dad

No less than 70 policemen escorted a 5-year-old in boy to school on his first day back after his father, a police officer, was killed in the line of duty.

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

A video from the Tribune Star shows Dakota walking past a long line of police officers.

Rob Pitts was one of four officers who were fired on as they approached an apartment building on May 4.

Severe weather alert for BI
Skies will be partly cloudy tonight. "Some of the storms could have some brief, heavy rain and frequent lightning", Reiner said. Much of today's severe weather forecast hinges on continued northward migration of that front.

Dakota Pitts asked his mother if one of his father's friends could drive him for his first day back.

Two weeks ago, IN police officer Rob Pitt was shot and killed by a homicide suspect during an exchange of gunfire.

Christopher Wolfe, 21, was suspected of shooting and killing a 26-year-old man at a home in Terre Haute.

So, Dakota asked his mom whether one of his dad's fellow police officers could escort him to Sullivan Elementary School in western Indiana. "He will definitely know his dad was a hero".

Dakota was given his own badge and a SWAT t-shirt when he arrived at the school in Sullivan, Ind.

Wolfe was also killed in the gunfire exchange. "Blood doesn't always make family, and I think the blue family just went above and beyond", said Kelli Jones, Officer Pitts' sister.

Rob, a 16-year veteran of the force, left behind a wife and his 5-year-old son, Dakota.

Dakota returned to school Monday and didn't want to go alone.
