VIDEO: Georgia Police officer Shot, Killed at Waffle House

A Griffin, Georgia, police officer was shot and killed early Saturday morning outside a Waffle House where he was working an extra-duty security job.

WSB-TV 2 is reporting three suspects are in custody after the shooting that happened at the restaurant at U.S. 19 around 2:30 a.m.

Police said 43-year-old Griffin Police Officer Kevin Jordan, a 4-year veteran of the force and father of seven, was shot and killed.

Police said a group of two men and a woman was asked to leave the restaurant. Jordan, who was working an off-duty security job in full uniform, was able to get them outside. At some point, the woman began fighting with Jordan, police said.

"As he was on the ground trying to cuff her, one of the males who was with her apparently brandished a firearm and shot (Jordan) three times in the back," said Griffin Police Officer Mike Richardson.

The officer's brother, a civilian, who had come to visit him, shot the man alleged to have shot the officer.

Again another good man dies at the hands of thugs who murder for no apparent reason. I'm glad the main thug was killed by the victim's brother. God bless you my brother in arms.

The sad thing is if the guy who shot the officer would have been shot by the bother. The bother would have been charged some how. That's because I this great world we live in today. All for the bad not for the innocent. God bless the fallen officer and his family. Just to make some extra money because we do not get paid sh--.

I was thinking the same thing rookie. It seems that cop killings are on the rise this year. Thank God the brother was packing, and exercising his right to carry. I hope the other 2 p.o.s.'s get what's coming to them. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Officer Jordan and his family and his family in blue. May God be with you.
