    Kevin Jordan, 43-year-old Griffin police officer and father of seven was shot and killed 5/31/14 while working an off-duty security job in full uniform.

    Two men & a woman were creating a disturbance & asked to leave. A fight broke out after Jordan got them outside and tried to handcuff the woman. One of the men shot the officer 3 times in in the back, penetrating his bullet-proof vest.

    The officer's brother, who had come to the Waffle House to meet with his brother, was in the parking lot when the gunfire erupted. He is a civilian but, has a permit to carry to a gun, and shot the alleged gunman who is being treated in an ATL hospital. The other 2 are in custody.

    We have several posters who live in this area who will probably have more information.

    How horrible for Officer Jordan's brother. "A good guy with a gun is the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun."

    Anybody want to make bets about the bad guy in this story having a carry permit?

    Snipped for link
    "During the initial reports of the incident it was stated that Officer Jordan’s bullet proof vest may have been penetrated. At this point in the investigation there is nothing from the preliminary review of the vest to support that. Further examination of the vest is pending at this time."

    What?
    The LEO died, although the bullets may not have penetrated his protective vest?

    What kind of gun & ammo?
    How close was shooter?

    Thx in adv for any info.:seeya:

    This article has info updated since CarolinaPeach's link to same site.

    "Jordan’s brother, who was visiting the officer at the time of the incident, returned fire in defense of his brother, striking Bowman. A civilian witness kicked Bowman’s weapon away and used the officer’s radio to call out, “Officer down.”

    Candlelight vigil tonight - B shift from the Griffin Police Dept. and Officer Jordan's family will be there.

    Saturday 10 am to 4 pm at the Griffin Wal-Mart, the Griffin Police Department, and Southern States PBA are hosting a fundraiser. Officers will be at the door collecting funds to donate to Officer Jordan's family.

    Saturday evening - Officer Jordan's son will graduate from Griffin High School. A large group of LE plan to attend to support the son. All agencies are encouraged to participate. Officers must be in full uniform.

    Sunday - visitation at Oak Hill Baptist Church from 4PM to 8PM.

    Monday - funeral at 2:30 p.m. Monday at Oak Hill Baptist Church.
    The procession will then depart the church and travel to Williamson Road. From there, it will turn left and continue to the Georgia 7 bypass. It will go north to Highway 16 and proceed east to Hill Street, where it will continue south to Airport Road. From Airport Road, the procession will turn right on Everee Inn Road, concluding at Westwood Gardens, which will be Officer Jordan’s final resting place.
    Officer Jordan will be honored by Griffin Fire-Rescue, which will fly a flag draped over his procession. After Officer Jordan passes underneath the flag, he will be transferred from the hearse to a horse-drawn caisson.
    Upon arriving at the cemetery, a closing prayer will be offered. It will be followed by a flag ceremony, a Masonic ceremony, a 21-gun salute, the playing of Taps and a missing man formation flyover.
    The community is encouraged to show respect for Officer Jordan’s service along the procession route.

    A local church has already raised over $10,000 for Officer Jordan's family through an online account. There are flags at half staff all over town in his honor, signs on local businesses recognizing his service and signs with his badge number in the windows of school buses. This town has been hurt deeply by his murder.

    This case was in my city/county. numerous people have come together to help the family. Numerous community businesses shut down during his funeral and showed respect to our fallen. He was a great cop and friend to many. He is truly missed in the community.
