INDIANAPOLIS - Fallen Officer Perry Renn served in his job with distinction and earned a Medal of Bravery twice.
Renn earned his first Medal of Bravery in December 1999. At the time, he was responding to a disturbance in the then-Phoenix Apartments.
According to a Letter of Commendation, he confronted a man with a knife who was threatening to hurt people on Sept. 13, 1999.
The suspect told Renn to kill him or he would kill the officer instead. Renn did not use his gun and instead used his chemical spray to end the incident.
Renn also earned a second Medal of Bravery in 2003. He also received a Letter of Commendation in 2012 for his efforts in responding to the 2011 State Fair stage rigging collapse.
