    Prayers for Cpl. Edwards family. May he rest in peace.

    Senseless. POS had an extensive criminal record including robbery and assault with intent to murder? POS shouldn't have been on the street.

    From July 2015:

    http://thenewsherald.com/articles/20...f917666301.txt

    Early in the morning on July 23, 2010, Edwards and his partner, Cpl. Greg Piche, responded to an irate man pounding on his ex-wife's door at the Coppertree Apartments, in the area of North Line and Telegraph roads..

    While Edwards and Piche were assessing the situation, the killer retrieved a pistol from a bag and shot Edwards several times. Piche exchanged gunfire with the man, Tyress Mathews, 37, of Westland, who was wounded and taken into custody.

    Mathews, who had a lengthy criminal history, was later found guilty of first-degree murder and murder of a peace officer. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.
