SA Reed was highly regarded by his peers. I was an agent in the FBI Philadelphia Division and a co-worker. I was one of the 1st agents to respond to the shooting and helped carry SA Reed to the Philly PD squad car that transported him to the hospital.

Much later, I had the opportunity to speak with Josh about the incident who followed in his father's footsteps and became an agent.

SA Reed's loss still affects me. That day is forever etched in my memory.
