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.

On today, the 8th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served in the U.S. Army. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
