The suspect was later taken into custody after again fleeing from police. He has been identified as Carl Roy Webb Boards II, 42.

"Finding the right words to say has been a challenge," Mayor Todd Jones said in a statement posted to the city's Facebook page. "How do you put into words the feelings and emotions that we have all been experiencing since we learned the tragic news about the death of one of our own, Officer Noah Shahnavaz."
"A senseless act of violence robbed this young man of the life and career he had ahead of him. As a father, I simply cannot fathom what Noah's parents must be going through right now," he continued. "Noah was not only part of the Elwood Police Department, he was part of our city family and we are grieving this tremendous loss, and we know we are not alone."
