Lynn was my friend. We were classmates. He dated my sister. When I would run into him in the mall, I didn't know whether to say "Hi" or ignore him in case he was working under cover as he so often was doing. He was "Cop" all the way! The raid was in a Mt. Lebanon house.... uniformed Mt. Lebanon Officers and plain clothed, under cover task force officers. Lynn came in the back through the basement and was going up the basement stairs when he was mistakenly shot. It still saddens me as I remember that day, and the days after.... and the memorial procession through the streets of Bethel Park...
