Police Officer Alfred Gordon was shot and killed while attempting to take police action during robbery attempt while off duty.

He had gone to an ATM at the intersection of Silver Star Road and North Hiawassee Road, in Orange County, at approximately 1:00 am. As he returned to his car he was approached by two juveniles armed with a handgun.

Officer Gordon drew his off duty weapon but was shot twice before being able to fire. He was found in his car with his gun on his lap a short time later by an off duty Orange County Sheriff's Office deputy. His department identification was found on the ground nearby.

Two juveniles were arrested two days later and charged in connection with Officer Gordon's murder. One of the juveniles had been released from custody only weeks earlier after serving several years for an armed robbery. Both juveniles were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison August 9th, 2009.

Officer Gordon was a veteran of the US Army where he served as an MP for 11 years. While in the Army he was awarded two Army Commendation Medals and one Army Achievement Medal. He had served with the Orlando Police Department for 18-1/2 years and was assigned to the Orlando International Airport. He is survived by his son and two daughters.

To Officer Gordon's family, friends, and fellow colleagues of the Orlando Police Dept. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to meet Officer Gordon. After reading many of the wonderful reflections, it defiantly shows he was well respected and loved by all. At Romans 13:1,2 it reads " let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God, the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God Therefore, whoever opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will bring judgement against themselves." Many in this violent world fail to heed this direct command by God to be in subjection to the superior authorities. Despite 8 years have passed since Officer Gordon's untimely death, i'm sure many still think about and may even still mourn. Our Heavenly Father has promised a wonderful prospect for Officer Gordon and for many others who have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 reads "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I pray Jehovah God promise of seeing Officer Gordon bring comfort to all.
