VIDEO: Cleveland Officer "Okay" After Shot in Vest

A Cleveland police officer is said to be doing "okay" after being shot during a police-involved shooting, reports WKYC.

According to CPPA President Jeff Follmer, the officer involved was treated and released from MetroHealth Medical Center. The officer was wearing a bullet proof vest and it's but because of his vest that he wasn't seriously injured.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams told Channel 3 the incident unfolded after officers were called by a neighbor for a disturbance at a nearby residence on Ottawa Avenue. The suspect involved, according to the chief, was a man officers have dealt with in the past.

All them times I didn't wear my vest Off & On during my last 2 years. Now that I think about it. It was STUPID. The new lightweight ones must be nice so keep them on Men & Women Officers.
