VIDEO: Navajo Nation Officer Shot in Head

The family of a Navajo Nation police officer is asking for prayers after he was shot in the head Saturday morning in the line of duty. Family members say Officer Joseph Gregg was alone when he responded to a domestic violence call in the Northern Arizona town of Kaibeto, which is roughly 150 miles north of Flagstaff on the Navajo Indian Reservation. On Sunday, family members told Fox 10 in Phoenix that Officer Gregg is out of surgery after bullet fragments were removed.

Officer Joseph Gregg has been with the Navajo Nation Police Department for 5 years. Navajo Nation officials say he was shot in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun during a domestic violence call. His sister says he had been called to a home in Kaibeto twice in the same day, both times for domestic violence. But the second time, someone shot him in the head.

Hope he makes it and does ok and returns to duty. I hate cop killers as all of them should be hung!!

It's unacceptable for him to be out there alone. The $544 million Eric Holder just paid out to the Navajo Nation needs to be used to double if not triple their force of Officers & resources. Prayers will be with you my fellow L.E. Brother Joseph Greg. May your Higher Power rain blessings upon you at this time..

May the strength of our Lord be with you and your family at this time and the road forward. allow the sword to find the coward who did this. Allow the light to shine to prevent tactical decisions from placing others into harms way based on staffing limitations.
