After hearing about the shooting deaths of three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, two children of a police officer miles away prayed for their dad.

The photo of the boy and girl wearing their father's uniform and kneeling next to his cruiser has gone viral.

It has been shared more than 3, 700 times since it was posted Sunday by the Indianapolis Metro Police Department on Facebook.

The caption reads: "praying their father and all police officers return home safely.”
