Today we are remembering and celebrating the life of Southport Police Department's Lieutenant Aaron Allan, who was killed in the line of duty last Thursday.

The procession from Crown Hill Cemetery to Bankers Life Fieldhouse, as well as from Bankers Life Fieldhouse to Crown Hill Cemetery, will leave a lot roads closed, as people gather to remember the life lost.
