Police Officer Henry Nelson was shot and killed at approximately 3:00 pm while responding to a domestic disturbance call where three women had been stabbed by a male subject at a home on Anna Street in Sunset.

When Officer Nelson arrived the subject was able to gain control of his service weapon and fatally shot him.

The subject fled the scene and crashed his vehicle into a nearby gas station where he barricaded himself for several hours. He was apprehended after a SWAT team made entry into the gas station.

Officer Nelson was airlifted to the hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds. One of the three stabbing victims also died.

Officer Nelson had served with the six-person Sunset Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his daughter.

My sincere condolences to Officer Nelson's family, friends, and colleagues of the Sunset Police Dept. At 2 Timothy 3:1 it states we are living in "critical times". Many in the world match the description that found at 2 Timothy 3:2-5 "having no natural affection". God has made a promise to restore the earth into a beautiful paradise and reverse the affects of death. Revelation 21:3,4 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 that Jehovah God words brings comfort to all that knew Officer Nelson.
