As stephen mentioned above, I was also there that day and saw the officers near the street being attacked by a deranged man who opened fire without warning. Their actions and ability to put up a fight for other responders to arrive, forced this coward out of the neighborhood and off on a chase. The suspect proceeded to jump in a river and was saved by fellow officers. I cannot tell you the courage I saw on display and am thankful for their actions, which I believe, saved many lives that day. I am very sorry that they had to pay the ultimate sacrifice. Hopefully they now know the impact they had on our community. God bless.
