Remember this like it was yesterday. I was working the same shift with Clark, we had been working adjourning districts. That day the Lt. asked Clark to work the Northside. 9:31 pm a strange voice came over the radio " Central" when dispatch asked who he was he replied I'm a citizen and you have an officer lying in the middle of the road. The citizen provided a well-known landmark as the loaction. One of the saddest days of my 42 year career. Still think about that day often!!!
