On July 31, 2022, a guy in Indiana is said to have gotten out of his automobile during a traffic stop and started the fire. As a consequence, Noah Shahnavaz, a young Indiana police officer, was killed. Noah Shahnavaz, 24, was an 11-month Elwood Police Department veteran and a five-year military veteran. Carl Roy Webb Boards II, 42, of Anderson, was apprehended and arrested in connection with the incident. Boards were brought to the Hamilton County jail and will be charged with habitual offender murder with a firearm enhancement, according to Andrew Hanna, Madison County’s senior deputy prosecutor.

Noah Shahnavaz allegedly pulled over a 2012 Buick LaCrosse at the intersection of State Road 37 and County Road 1100 North at about 2 a.m. The cops did not reveal the cause for the traffic stop. Boards then exited the Buick and fired six bullets, hitting Shahnavaz at least once before fleeing the area.

According to Elwood and Madison County authorities, Shahnavaz was hurt during the event, and attempts were made to rescue him until medical assistance came. Soon after, Shahnavaz was taken to Ascension St. Vincent Mercy Hospital in Elwood before being transferred to an Indianapolis-area hospital by helicopter. Unfortunately, he died as a result of his injuries.

Officers from Hamilton County police located the Buick driving south on State Board 37 at about 2:30 a.m. Officers pursued the Buick and used a tire-deflation tool in the same place. The truck was also driven to Interstate 69, where Fisher’s police utilized two “precise immobilization measures.” According to reports, the car collided with the median barrier wall. Boards were later apprehended. On Sunday, he was being detained without bail in the Hamilton County jail.

Elwood officials and citizens are mourning the loss of Noah Shahnavaz.

Elwood Mayor Todd Jones noted that it is very difficult to find the right words to comfort Noah Shahnavaz’s family and the community. He explained:

“A senseless act of violence took away this young man’s life and career.”

Twelve hours after the horrific incident, several Elwood and surrounding area residents gathered in front of the Elwood Government Building shortly before a 2 p.m. news conference. Among them were Lindy Walker and Donna Williams.

According to Williams:

“All of these officers are being murdered. It’s heartbreaking. I hope this person is held accountable for what he did to the police. “The officer did not deserve to die in this manner.”

Another citizen, Bill Partlow, arrived from Frankton to express his sorrow. Bill was a former fireman, while his brother, Shane Partlow, was a former deputy. Both were taken aback by the encounter and said in a statement:

“We’re all brothers as first responders, whether we’re retired or not. It is really personal for everybody of us. We never expected this to happen here.”

On Sunday, an Elwood police officer was killed in the line of duty for the second time. Willard S. VanHorn was killed on July 1, 1932, while reacting to a burglary.
