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.

This year was definitely more of a struggle to get through. These recent events in our city brought it all back - so many parallels. Nine years - feels like a lifetime, but at the same time it feels like only yesterday I got the phone call. I really do try my best to think of all the funny, great times but 363 days out of the year I allow myself to be sad and grieve the loss. You are missed so much and there are still everyday reminders that you're still here. I keep the Mexico blanket in my car and I keep the frog on my computer at work - I guess I always will.
