Officer Ken Jordan was shot and killed while backing up an officer during a traffic stop of a suspected drunk driver on Fountain Boulevard at 11:15 pm.

When Officer Jordan and the second backup officer approached the vehicle, the assailant opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Jordan. The other officer returned fire, seriously wounding the suspect.

Officer Jordan was transported to Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds approximately one hour later.

In December 2008, the suspect pleaded guilty to all charges in connection with Officer Jordan's murder and was sentenced to life in prison, plus 167 years.

Officer Jordan had served with the Colorado Springs Police Department for 6 years. He is survived by his parents and sister.

Found myself here because I'm at work and the database just popped out the number 1760. The frog you gave me looks like he's using my desk lamp as a stripper pole so that made me laugh. I've gone through the gamut of emotions a million times since 2006, but lately I feel peace about you and it's nice. I miss you always, but I know you're always here.
