Police in Georgia are mourning the loss of an officer and father of seven children who they say was gunned down by an intoxicated suspect at Waffle House this weekend.
Kevin Jordan, 43, who had been with the Griffin Police Department for four years, was fatally shot by Michael D. Bowman, 30, early Saturday morning, according to police.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that an altercation at the Waffle House began when Jordan asked three drunk and disorderly customers to leave the restaurant.
Instead, the three allegedly began hurling racial slurs at Jordan, who was a retired Marine.
The officer’s brother, Raymond Jordan, said he was at the restaurant to keep his brother company while he worked, and witnessed the fatal shooting.
As the argument between Jordan and the patrons escalated outside the restaurant, Jordan attempted to restrain and arrest 28-year-old Chantell Mixon while on the ground when Bowman “maliciously shot” Jordan five times in the back, killing him, according to a police statement.
