Very sorry for the loss to the Hogan family. Officer Hogan and his partner saved my mothers life that day by responding to the domestic call. They were truly heroes doing their job.

Myself and sister were outside in front of the house and our our way to school when the shots were fired. My mother fled for her life out the back door in fear that she would be the next.

So sorry for this tragedy.
