Glen Fisher was my new partner, assigned to 1D vice the very day of the raid. I did not meet him until our unit gather for a briefing before serving the search warrant. At the scene I was shot while knocking down the door. I was semiconscious and rolled over to get up as the rest of the raiding team was entering the premises. I found Glen laying next to me. As I reflect on that night I believe he was trying to get me out of the line of fire when he was shot and killed. I think of him as a hero who disregarded his own safety to aid a fellow officer down.
