Speaking at a press conference on Sunday afternoon was Elwood Mayor Todd Jones: “Noah proudly wore the Elwood Police Department uniform, serving the citizens of Elwood, he was part of our city family. A senseless act of violence robbed this man of the life and career that he had ahead of him,”

“On behalf of myself, my family and a most grateful city, I’m asking you to keep Noah’s family, friends, the Elwood Police Department and our city in your thoughts and prayers as we attempt to navigate through this tragic time.”

Boards is being detained in the Hamilton County Jail right now. Shahnavaz, who spent five years in the American Army and graduated from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in April, is survived by his parents, siblings, and mother.
