Police Officer Aubrey Travis Johnson Jr, may you continue to rest in peace.

May God comfort your family and colleagues.

Police officers can pass away in the line of duty in many ways, even after or whilst recovering from something not considered major at the time.

May God keep us all, love from the United Kingdom
