Officer Ken Jordan was shot and killed while backing up an officer during a traffic stop of a suspected drunk driver on Fountain Boulevard at 11:15 pm.

When Officer Jordan and the second backup officer approached the vehicle, the assailant opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Jordan. The other officer returned fire, seriously wounding the suspect.

Officer Jordan was transported to Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds approximately one hour later.

In December 2008, the suspect pleaded guilty to all charges in connection with Officer Jordan's murder and was sentenced to life in prison, plus 167 years.

Officer Jordan had served with the Colorado Springs Police Department for 6 years. He is survived by his parents and sister.

Just got back from Alaska. Keeping to my promise, I brought Kyle and Katelynn along and basically did the same itinerary as our last trip back in 2006. I was able to share with them the places you have been and activities you have participated in. They had a great time. I know you were with us sharing in our moments. You are deeply missed and still think of you every day.
