Officer Shot in NC

Today was a very long and tragic day here. An officer was shot while serving a warrant. I couldnt believe it when I saw it on the news and I had my new friend over for lunch. I just sat there a little in shock and another good friend called me telling me who it was. She also told me that they considered it fatal at first but later changed when he started to communicate a little. This came as such a shock to me and I got to thinking how quick things could change. I mean I have attmepted to serve a couple hundred warrants in my years and that could of happened to anyway. I didnt know this officer personal but it struck me hard and I couldnt help but begin to cry thinking we may lose a fellow officer. My friend couldnt believe it and all she could do was just give me a hug and be there for me. It was nice to have her there but I had to ask her to leave so I could go to work early and help where ever I could. I ended up directing traffic around the incident for over 5 hours. When I heard that he made it through surgery and they were able to remove the bullet I was relieved and grateful. They just didnt know how serious his injuries would be since he did take a shot in the head.

I just needed to post this to get it off my chest a little. I wasnt very descriptive because I really dont want to go in detail. So all I ask is that everyone keep him in your thoughts and prayers along with his family. Also think about the others that put thereselves on the line for your saftey from Police to fire figthers military and medics.

My uncle is a police officer in Indianopolis, and I have numerous family members in various branches of the military. I fear for their lives everyday. I will keep you and that officer in my prayers.
