Veteran Mass. Cop Fatally Shot at Domestic Call

June 04, 2012  | 

A veteran Springfield (Mass.) Police officer was shot and killed attempting to help the girlfriend of a corrections officer who later turned a gun on himself.

Officer Kevin Ambrose, a 36-year veteran of the force, responded to 90 Lawton St. to assist Charlene Mitchell, 29. Ambrose met outside with Mitchell and Sean Bryant, a Rikers Island corrections officer, reports the Boston Globe.

Bryant shoved Mitchell into an apartment and shot Bryant through the door as the officer attempted to gain entry to the apartment.

Another tragic result of responding to a "domestic dispute." At least Bryant did one thing riight in the end and killed himself. The Boston Globe article does not mention the condition of the girl he shot. Hopefully she will recover.

May the family and friends of Officer Ambrose eventually find some peace as they deal with this senseless incident that has changed the rest of their lives.

"Bryant shoved Mitchell into an apartment and shot Bryant through the door as the officer attempted to gain entry to the apartment." Should be 'shot Ambrose through the door.'

Another example of a law enforcement officer selflessly laying his life down to defend a complete stranger. That man was a hero and I am proud to share my profession with individuals like him.
