Officer Norris succumbed to stab wounds sustained when he and his partner attempted to breakup a fight at a discotheque. Patrons turned riotous when the establishment closed abruptly for the night after someone set off some firecrackers. Three people were also shot.

Officer Norris, your life was taken for one of the stupidest reasons. The fate of your murderer is not listed here, but we can only hope he faced true justice for his/her crimes, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be in peace.
