A postcard perfect sunset added to the drama of a prayer service Monday evening for wounded San Bernardino Police Officer Gabriel Garcia.
San Bernardino Police Chaplain Ray Miller asked the 2,000 people attending the service at San Manuel Stadium to pray for “Gabe’s healing, for his complete recovery,” the San Bernardino County Sun reports.
Miller said he was angry about the “cowardly” ambush that felled Garcia, 31, early Friday morning. Garcia was shot with an assault rifle during a protracted gun battle.
At one point, the crowd, at Miller’s instruction, held out their arms in the direction of Colton’s Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where Garcia is in a medically induced coma and shouted “heal, Gabe!”
