Just received word from some colleagues of the death of a police officer in an adjoining county. Officer Steve Smith was off duty and riding along with a co-worker and while assisting on a call was shot in the chest with a shotgun. Suspect is in custody at this time but Officer Smith succumbed to his wounds. He was not wearing his armor and off duty so the family will probably be screwed over. Pray for this officer and his family. ETA: The officer is not deceased. He was shot at close range with a shotgun in the arm and upper chest. As of this mrning he survived surgery and is stable. Please keep praying.
