A Bernice, OK, police officer died over the weekend from an apparent heart attack.
Officer Matt North completed his patrol shift on Friday and due to chest pains he immediately sought medical attention. He was discharged from the hospital Friday night but returned Saturday morning.

“It is with the deepest of sadness and disbelief that I write this post today. Bernice Police Department lost one of its own this morning. Officer Matt North went home to be with the Lord much sooner than any of us were ready.”
