Police Officer Jillian Smith was shot and killed after responding to an apartment for a report of a domestic dispute.

Officer Smith responded to take a report in regards to an earlier domestic dispute. The male subject had already left the apartment when she arrived at the location. Officer Smith was inside the apartment taking a report from the female victim when the male subject returned unexpectedly.

As the man opened fire Officer Smith positioned herself to shield the woman's 11-year-old daughter, saving the girl but receiving fatal gunshot wounds. The man then chased the woman to a bedroom where he murdered her before killing himself.

Officer Smith had served with the Arlington Police Department for 10 months and had finished her field training 15 days prior to her murder.

I did not have the honor of knowing Officer Smith but after reading her story my heart ached because of the senseless way in which she was murdered. I am moved with compassion for her surviving family members and will keep them in my prayers that her legacy and memory will not be forgotten in her death. "God is not unfaithful as to forget her labor of love in that she ministered..."
