The Mobile (Ala.) Police Department is mourning the loss of Officer Steven Green, after a robbery suspect fatally stabbed him during transport.

Officer Green, 36,  was transporting Lawrence Wallace, Jr., to Mobile Metro Jail at 3:50 p.m. on Feb. 3, when Wallace assaulted the officer, and escaped with the officer's patrol car. Officer Green was transported to the University of South Alabama Medical Center where he later died.

Wallace, 24, escaped and abandoned the patrol car in the area of Daytona Drive and tried to hide under a residence. As officers closed in on him, Wallace fired at Officer Mark Johnson, striking him in the arm. Officers then fatally shot Wallace.

Officer Green had been with the department since May of 2010 and was assigned to the Fifth Precinct. He is survived by a wife and three children.

"It is a sad day for the Mobile Police force and for law enforcement," said Mobile Police Chief Micheal Williams in a statement. "Our sympathy certainly goes to Officer Green's wife and family."

Does anyone know how this went down (details about how blade was missed)? Praying for our brother's family and colleagues.

BL Smith @ 2/7/2012 1:59 PM

I read from another post earlier today that the suspect had a handcuff key secreted in a necklace he was wearing and had the blade attached to his bicep in some fashion. That's all I have seen in today's posts.

Our entire staff sends our prayers to the family of Office Green and our support to the MAPD. Your service to this Country will always be honored. RIP brother Steve.

Rest in peace officer. They got him.
A thank you for your service from fellow security/ law enforcement officers and the citizens of Alabama.
