IMPD officer to be honored with Top Cop Award

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer shot in the line of duty last year will be honored for his bravery.

On May 30, 2014, Officer Greg Milburn was involved in a shootout with a suspect who killed a woman and her granddaughter in a home on the city’s northeast side. Officers were initially called to the home on the report of an unknown disturbance. Police say the 911 operator could hear a woman screaming and things being slammed in the background.

Officer Milburn was the first officer on scene. He survived after being shot in his bullet proof vest. The suspect, 36-year-old Quintico Goolsby, died at the scene.

Residents in the Martindale Brightwood area later thanked Officer Milburn for risking his life to save others.

Milburn will be honored with members of the law enforcement community from around the country at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on May 12. Since 1994, the TOP COPS Awards have paid tribute to officers across the U.S. for actions above and beyond the call of duty. Awardees are nominated by their fellow officers.
