A Nappanee native and five-year veteran of the Indianapolis Police Department is being remembered for his heroic actions, days after he was killed in the line of duty.

Visitation was held Wednesday for 41-year-old Rod Bradway, a highly-decorated officer, who had just been awarded the Medal of Bravery.

He was fatally shot last Friday, while trying to save a woman who was being held hostage in her apartment.

A small ceremony was held for Bradway's family, as officers presented his wife with an American flag in honor of his service on Indy's police force.

Bradway's funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

He will be buried afterwards in the Crown Hill Cemetery "Heroes of Public Safety" section.

Thousands of officers from around the state, as well as hundreds of residents, are expected to attend.

Newscenter 16 will be there as well, bringing you complete coverage of the service both on the air and online at
