Officer Involved Shooting (OIS)


There was a police officer involved shooting today. It was not too far from my home. I was actually headed to the police department to talk to someone about becoming a volunteer police chaplain when I drove near the the scene.

My prayers go out to all those involved -- the family, friends and community, as well as the law enforcement officers. The last thing police want to do is get in a lethal confrontation. Police officers, by nature and by training, do all they can to avoid these circumstances. These situations are always hurtful, emotionally and spiritually, to all parties involved. Again, my thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved. May there be healing and hope in the days and months that come.
