INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry filed paperwork to seek the death penalty against Jason Brown, the man accused of killing Southport officer Lt. Aaron Allan.
Brown, 28, is charged with the murder of Southport Police Department Lt. Aaron Allan. His pretrial date is set for October 4 and his jury trial is set for October 16. Curry said in August he was discussing with Lt. Allan’s family the possibility of seeking the death penalty.
The fatal shooting occurred on Thursday, July 27 when Allan responded to a crash at South Madison Avenue and Maynard Drive where a BMW had flipped. Brown was the driver of the car, and he was wedged inside and “hysterical,” according to court documents. Allan tried to calm him down and assured him help was on the way.
According to court documents, Brown shot Allan 11 times, and he later died from his wounds at Eskenazi Hospital.
