The officer was in a residential area near downtown after taking a report about an assault that had occurred elsewhere in the city. Someone then drove up to the side of the cruiser and opened fire at about 2 a.m., police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said." Reports say that the officer has come through surgery and it is hoped he will make a full recovery. We can pray that he will.
