Officer Estorffe, thank you for your 2 short years of service. A tragic event to say the least for all involved and what will become of the child? I thank God you was able to prevent the suspect from killing any other law enforcement personnel before succumbing yourself. You probably saved lives by taking one.

You are both heroes and may you both forever Rest in Peace and may God Bless you and all who knew and loved you best.
