As a Jackson Police Officer who was on shift that night and who arrived on scene shortly after, I think about that night rather often.

Although we worked different precincts, we coincidentally fueled up our patrol cars together at the same gas station at the start of our shift. We stood around and talked for a few minutes, Brian, me, and a third officer.

I am so thankful I have that memory.

Rest In Peace Brother!
