The Edmonton community is mourning the tragic loss of two police officers who were shot and killed early Thursday morning. The Edmonton Police Service has not confirmed the exact location where the incident happened, but dozens of officers are on the scene near the neighborhoods of Inglewood and Woodcroft, with much of the police response stationed near the Baywood Apartments at 114 Avenue and 132 Street.
This senseless act of violence has left the community in shock and mourning. The Edmonton Police Service has scheduled a news conference later in the morning to provide further details about the incident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and colleagues of the officers during this difficult time.
The loss of two brave officers is a stark reminder of the dangers that law enforcement officers face every day while serving and protecting our communities. We must take a moment to recognize the incredible courage and dedication that our police officers exhibit every day, and express our gratitude for their service.
As a community, we must come together to support the families and colleagues of the fallen officers, and to show our appreciation for the ongoing commitment of all law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. We also urge anyone with information about the shooting to come forward and assist the Edmonton Police Service in their investigation.
In conclusion, we extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends, and colleagues of the officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. Let us honor their memory by standing together as a community and working towards a safer and more peaceful future for all.
LATEST: Cst Travis Jordan, age 35, 8.5 years service. Cst Brett Ryan, age 30, 5.5 years service.
