Sad Local Event

I saw a note on Facebook early this morning saying something about a Pelham Police officer who was killed while on duty early this morning.
I quickly searched local news and it was true. A 33 year old policeman doing a routine traffic stop on I-65 243 (two exits past where I get off to go to my job) when the incident occurred. Part of the incident was captured on video.
Two men were arrested a few hours later. The main suspect arrested in the case is a pharmacist that lives not far from Empire. The news reports said "he may have been a pharmacist" what ever that means.
It is very hard for me to wrap my mind around this situation. It is sad on so many levels. My heard goes out to the families.
