Town on Lockdown

3rd hit in less than a week
Still reeling from #1 and #2

On Dec. 26, 2018 at about 2 am our phones started sending alerts. 
We were under Blue Alert.

Blue Alert - The purpose of the Blue Alert Program is to establish a quick response system designed to issue and coordinate alerts following a violent attack upon a law enforcement officer. The goal of a Blue Alert is to provide immediate information to the public about violent suspects via media broadcasts, and other notification resources to solicit help from the public in the safe and swift apprehension of the suspect. 

These alerts continued throughout the morning on our phones and TV.
We were told to stay inside, lock doors and windows.
It took a few hours to find out exactly what was happening.

We finally got word.
Our K9 Officer Cpl. Ronil Singh was shot and killed at a routine traffic stop.
The suspect had disappeared, but they did have a description of his vehicle and photos of him at Chevron on Main St.
That's only a couple minutes from my home.

Hwy. 33 (N St.) which runs through our little town was closed.

About 3:30 pm we received an update: 

BLUE ALERT UPDATE - The suspect's vehicle has been located. The suspect is still outstanding. IF SEEN, CALL 9-1-1

About that time Hwy. 33 was semi-opened 
and a traffic check was posted.

Our community is in mourning and remembering Ronil by 
 dropping off flowers, cards, and balloons at the Station.

 Cpl. Ronil Singh was a very sweet man and an asset to the force.
Our sincere condolences go out to his wife and 5 month old little boy.

There have been no more updates to his whereabouts
 or where his vehicle was found.
