My condolences to your family and to your agency. I just hope that your memory will be forever remembered in the annals of Tennessee Law Enforcement. It's sad consolation knowing that the perp will be captured. It's also sad that the perp could have complied and otherwise cooperated but his actions triggered a lot of pain for a lot of people. I hope your family and fellow officers recover as well as can be expected from this tragedy. We all support you and your agency.
