I was around there at that time. On my way home from work from West Point GA. I remember seeing blue lights on 431 from Roanoke PD. I had either taken the route on Roanoke Rd. Or from Fredonia to Welch. I change it up from time to time. Just riding. Anytime I see PD activity I look up later to see what was happening. Then I find this out. God bless you Jmar. While I was on my way home from work. You were still on the clock. You did your best. For that. I am thankful.
