Police Officer Allen Lee Jacobs was shot multiple times as he and other Community Response Team officers attempted to interview a known gang member at a home near Rebecca Street and Ackley Road, in the Nicholtown neighborhood.

When the subject saw the officers he fled on foot onto a wooded path with officers in pursuit. He was chased into the backyard of a home where he fatally shot Officer Jacobs. He was able to continue fleeing but encountered other officers who had created a perimeter. He committed suicide before he could be taken into custody.

Other officers rendered aid to Officer Jacobs, who was transported to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Officer Jacobs was a decorated United States Army veteran and served with the Greenville Police Department for 4-1/2 years. He is survived by his expectant wife and two sons, and his parents and one sister.

May your family and fellow law enforcement brothers and sisters find hope and redemption in your sacrifice, that you gave up your life in the noble duty of service to others. May your memory live strong through the loving and honorable words and remembrances, and continued good works. Most of all, may you Rest in Peace, assured that your unborn child, whose face was yet unseen by your loving eyes, and whose own eyes could not have known his father's gentle gaze, will still be connected to you in spirit, vicariously through a legacy of truth revealed by all who speak of knowing the hero you were, will forever be... for selflessly dedicating your life to making a beautiful difference in the world.
