After subduing the woman and was 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.

I remember we went to Gang Enforcement together and we had a good time. I never said this, but I was in a rough patch and on break you had me laughing. You were a righteous dude. We were gonna hang out but got too busy. You police in this state long enough, you're gonna lose buddies.

I wished I'd called you. I hope you are resting well.

You had a good, Man's handshake.
You deserved better.
