A California Highway Patrol officer remained in critical condition Wednesday, a day after he was shot by a subject during a traffic stop in the East Bay near Alamo.

According to Contra Costa County sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee, Lacy shot the officer in the head and the officer's partner returned fire, mortally wounding Lacy who died later, reports ABC News.

LEO Youngstrom, we all are paying God to keep looking after you. We pray that you come back home, to your family and loved ones.
