    One of my partners went thru the academy with him at NEALEA. He's closely watching the outcome of this event as it unfolds. I'm very sorry that it doesn't look like there is a positive outcome for the officer involved.

    Thanks for posting this Bama. I came here to make sure you guys knew about it. As of 4 pm, no official word as to his condition and the area is still being searched for the shooter.

    All I have been told is that he stopped to talk to a young man about 11 am, got out of his car and a foot chase started. He chased the guy through the neighborhood and at some point was shot in the head.

    I have heard from local officers information saying that the officer has passed, but that is unconfirmed by anyone else or any news. Note, the local news says "still alive but on life support, and they report one suspect in custody". This as of minutes ago. I don't think anyone really knows what is up yet.

    On the local news at 9pm, they said the Officer Sollohub was on life support with no brain activity. He is being kept this way to gain organs, as he was a donor.

    The report at the link I posted earlier from the CBS 42 station, reflects this updated information.
