He left Constable Flora unconscious and fled the scene. Constable Flora regained consciousness and called for assistance. He was transported to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The suspect was apprehended shortly after the shooting. The car which was wrecked had been stolen by the juvenile earlier in the day.

27 years ago seems like a lifetime then other days like yesterday. In the 27 years we've had ups & downs the most recent was Stevie passed away soon be a year this December. Mimmie has done ok considering but she too has had some things going on with her blood pressure. If it weren't for the senseless act of Brian Woodcock, we could have had you by our side which would have made these things somewhat easier. He still after all
these years can't give us a reason as to why he pulled the trigger & I know as a Christian I am supposed to forgive, but I haven't got there yet & not sure I ever will.

Miss you dearly!! So wish our daughter could have met you. She does however know who you are, we will forever keep your memory alive!
