The suspect is in custody, as you know. I think there are those people who would say, “You know what, I wished you’d killed him.” No. That’s not who we are. We are not him. We did our job. I’m incredibly proud of the men, women who go out there every day and put their live on the line. And today this organization, this family has suffered a horrific loss.
