Colorado Officer Recovering from Late Friday Shooting

November 17, 2014  | 

Police in Aurora, Colo., say they still have no suspect information in a shooting late Friday that left an officer wounded.

Officials told the Denver Post Monday that the officer remains hospitalized in good condition and that he is "improving every day."

Police say they have increased the reward for information leading to a suspect who stole a "puffer" car and shot an officer Friday night during a routine traffic stop to $7,000.

The shooting happened about 9 p.m. when a patrol car with two uniformed patrol officers pulled a car over for a traffic stop.

Be safe, Blues! Remember - they THINK you're pulling them over because you know who they are and what they just did. They may not even know about the busted tail light that actually got your attention.

You never know what may have just happened and is on the mind of the driver or the passengers in a car. Timothy Mc Vey from the Oklahoma City Bombing was apprehended because of a missing rear license plate. Treat all public contact as a potential serious incident and stay safe out there. Traffic infractions are the most dangerous area of contact the Police have with the public.

My prayers to the wounded Officer and his partner.
