Kevin Jordan had been with the Griffin Police Department in Atlanta, Georgia for four years before he was fatally shot by an intoxicated suspect at Waffle House this weekend.
Today his fellow officers are mourning his loss.
Jordan, 43 , was assisting three intoxicated people that he had asked leave the restaurant outside during the wee hours of Saturday morning. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, that’s when an altercation at the Waffle House began.
Instead of leaving peacefully, the three allegedly began hurling racial slurs at the retired Marine.
An argument escalated and when Jordan attempted to restrain and arrest the 28-year-old woman, Chantell Mixon, while she was on the ground, he was “maliciously shot” five times in the back by 30-year-old, Michael D. Bowman, killing him, according to a police statement.
