NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Across Virginia, law enforcement agencies are honoring a Norfolk police officer shot and killed in the line of duty Friday night.
You are looking at a real life hero. No, not the ones you see on TV or in big budget films. This hero goes by the name of Officer Brian Jones.
Last night Officer Jones ran towards the chaos with the safety of his community foremost in his mind. He ultimately gave his life for the City he was sworn to protect. He leaves behind a wife and three children, so many friends, and his partners at Norfolk PD. The Norfolk Police Department is not alone in this tragedy as we stand beside our brothers and sisters and extend our deepest sympathy.
We can’t even begin to express how heartbreaking this is for the Norfolk community as there were so many lives touched by this senseless act of violence. Please, let us never forget the face of this true hero… Officer Brian Jones.
