At 1:57pm, 1F01 made a traffic stop on a grey minivan for running a red light. As the officer approached the window of the car, the suspect shot at him with an automatic weapon. The officer tried to run back to his car for cover but was killed before he could get behind his cruiser.
The suspect drove off leaving the officer dead at the side of the road. 911 calls rushed into the OCC and after a few minutes, officers from around the Dukes and Broker area responded and found the officer dead on arrival.
The dash cam footage showed the tragic events that happened. The shooter, Roy Jordan who was 48 years old, shot the officer as soon as he reached the window. He then fled the scene but didn't put any effort into getting rid of any evidence. The dash cam caught everything.
Officers swarmed his house but there was no one home. As they entered the backyard, they found bullet holes in the wall. The Major Crimes Unit was called to search the area for anything that could lead to the whereabouts of Roy Jordan.
At 2:58pm, 2 RCMP officers found a man matching the description of Roy Jordan. They moved in for the arrest and confirmed that it was him. He will be placed in front of a judge early next week. The officers funeral will be held at the Colony Island Cemetery on the 12th January 2014.
