I just posted this in the BOTS forum, but thought you all should know since he was a fellow Missourian.

Our Dept. lost one tonight on the north side of St. Louis.  He was shot once while conducting a pedestrian check.  The shot went under his arm (where we are not protected) and went through his heart.  For those of you who have never heard a man dying, the screams for help that he made over the radio were soul chilling.

He was only 22 years old.  He graduated from the Police Academy in Dec 2006.

I have not posted his name yet since it has not been officially released.

Let us pray for and remember his family at some point today.

God speed brother.  Your time in hell is over.

Damn Sorry to hear. And he was a year younger than me. It seems to me people have been especially violent towards police lately You be careful out there and always watch your back
