A Black police officer out of Arkansas was shot and killed in his home according to Fox News

Oliver Johnson Jr. of the Forrest City Police Department was killed inside his home on April 28. A little before 2 p.m. an unidentified person came to his home and shot bullets at his home.

According to neighbors, children were inside of the house at the time one of which was his daughter. A family member inside the house at the time said Johnson died after being hit by a bullet. That family member attempted to perform CPR on him. Portia Weatherspoon, a relative of Johnson, recalled hearing 40 shots go off.

“They hit the apartment. They hit the car. They hit the whole place up,” explained a witness to the shooting.

Believed to not be targeted, authorities are still investigating the incident and are hoping to find out who the suspects are.

It was an encounter between the suspects and another group outside of the apartment,” according to West Memphis Police Capt. Joe Baker.  “This hits everyone a little close to home in law enforcement. He was a police officer, some of my officers did, in fact, know him.”

Johnson leaves behind two daughters and a fiancé. They were in the midst of planning a birthday party for their youngest daughter.

    Who said the shooter was BLACK?? This article first of all is all over the place. It said the shooter was unidentified. Then it said the police are looking for “suspects” which makes no sense if it was only one shooter. I hope they find out who did this it might have been another officer?? You just don’t know because the investigator does not even know. So for you racist to get on here and say it was another Black person is RIDICULOUS AND RACIST…

    Please, the usual whiners will skip commenting on this tragedy because there’s no evil white man involved…let some convicted felon get shot by the police while involved in some shady, community-destroying crime and wait for the whining to start. This upstanding police officer, citizen and father gets gunned down by the same ilk he’s charged with protecting his community from…resident whiners, where are you???????

    Black Lives “Don’t” Matter will hold a demonstration because a beautiful black man was murdered by black boys. Wait, What was I thinking? Stay sleep.

      Gangbanging thugs for whom black lives DON’T matter; yet if those quotes from the article are true
      WHO did the shooter think was living inside?
      RIP Officer Johnson and let’s pray that the investigation is conducted swiftly and thoroughly.
