Police Officer Kevin Jordan was shot and killed when arresting a female subject while working an overtime assignment at approximately 2:30 a.m.

He was working the assignment at a Waffle House on U.S. 19 when three customers began creating a disturbance. He escorted the three outside but the female subject began fighting with him. After subduing the woman and while placing her in handcuffs on the ground, one of the male subjects shot him in the back three times. One round was stopped by his vest, but a second entered an area unprotected by his vest and struck his heart and lungs.

Officer Jordan's civilian brother, who had come to the location to speak with him, witnessed the shooting. The brother, who was armed, shot and wounded the subject, who was taken into custody. He was sentenced to life without parole in February 2017.

Officer Jordan was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Griffin Police Department for four years. He is survived by his seven children.

Officer Jordan, I met your sweet Mother at COPS Parent's Retreat in October 2019. She and I had a wonderful visit about "our boys" and enjoyed an evening of song and entertainment with the other parents. Please know that your Mom loves you and misses you every minute of every day. You are her hero and will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father. Sincerely, Anne Beitel. Mother of fallen LEO Officer Milburn Beitel, III.
