I worked with Lt. Candie the night before this fatal shooting. Lt. Candie was a man who looked out after his fellow officers and talk with them about anything. He would joke with everyone at work. When it came down to business, he would sit you down to help resolve the issue. He was a great guy to work alongside with. Miss you sir.
