She had just made a purchase and gave the signal a buy had been completed. Another officers mistook her for a suspect holding a gun and shot her once in the abdomen, fatally wounding her.

Officer Schaefer had served with the Houston Police Department for 3 years. She was survived by her husband and two children.

This will always be a day of sadness for me. Kathy was special to me and many others, and the tragic circumstances of her passing will always be with me. God Bless her children, as they lost so much more than the rest of us...
