Sullivan Elementary School Principal Samantha Phegley knows the struggle that Dakota Pitts will face.

The suspect was killed, while Officer Pitts died at Terre Haute Regional Hospital.

All five-year-old Dakota Pitts asked for was to be taken to school by one of his dad's co-workers and friends.

Officer Pitts and his team approached an apartment complex Friday evening where an armed murder suspect was barricaded inside.

Dakota Pitts asked his mother if one of his father's friends could drive him for his first day back.

When he arrived at his school in Sullivan he was greeted by 70 Terre Haute police officers and Vigo County sheriff's deputies.
