Patrolman Nickolaus Schultz succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained two days earlier while investigating reports of an evicted tenant moving back in to his condominium on the 8200 block of Lincoln Circle. The subject was wearing body armor and ambushed responding officers, striking Patrolman Schultz in the head.

The man then committed suicide.

Patrolman Schultz was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was kept on life support until passing away two days later.

Patrolman Schultz had served with the Merrillville Police Department for 13 months. He is survived by his parents and sister.

From a highly grateful Merrillville resident:

Words cannot describe the pain brought to this town by the loss of such an amazing officer and person. While it has been nearly 3 years since you left us all, it seems as if it were only yesterday that you could be seen patrolling in your car. There is no way to bring you back, so we must go on and keep you in our minds and our hearts.

You have even further inspired me to follow my passion and want to become an Indiana State Trooper to walk the blue line. There are many days where I think of you and the many officers that have fallen to protect the many. While your sacrifice may become lost in time, you are never forgotten.

Until we meet again...
