Friday’s Heroes: Remembering The Fallen
The Graveyard Shift extends our condolences to the families of these brave officers.
Agent Victor Soto-Velez, 37
Puerto Rico Police Department
June 26, 2012 – Agent Victor Soto-Velez was off-duty and traveling to his home when his car was intercepted by a vehicle driven by armed assailants. The ambushers then fired at least fifteen rounds into the agent’s car. It is believed the attack occurred because of Agent Soto-Velez’s work as a narcotics officer. Agent Soto-Velez died as a result of gunshot wounds. He is survived by his two children.
Officer Celena Hollis, 32
Denver Colorado Police Department
June 24, 2012 – Officer Celena Hollis was shot in the head when she attempted to break up a fight between two groups of people during a jazz festival in a city park. Officer Hollis was transported to the hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. She is survived by her daughter.
I was not looking forward to this week’s Friday post, knowing that we’d have one from Colorado on the list 🙁
