Tell City police shares thanks over support for fallen officer

TELL CITY, Ind. (WISH) — After one of its veteran officers was killed in a shooting early Monday morning, the Tell City Police Department says it has experienced “a magnitude of support unlike anything (they’ve) experienced.”

Around 1 a.m. Monday, Sgt. Heather Glenn was fatally shot in a struggle with 34-year-old Sean Hubert. The shooting happened when Glenn responded to a domestic incident report between Hubert and another woman.

The department shared in a Facebook post that the agency is focused on supporting Glenn’s family and supporting its fellow officers and dispatch impacted by Glenn’s death.

The department also shared its thanks to the over 2,000 people who attended Sgt. Glenn’s candlelight vigil Monday evening, and said it was “humbling” to see everyone take time to pay their respects.

“Thank you, Tell City. We see you, we hear you, we will continue to serve you,” the department said in the post.
