Mayor Asks For Community Support
From Richardson Mayor Paul Voelker:
On behalf of the Richardson City Council, words cannot express how heavy our hearts are today. Last night, Richardson Police Officer David Sherrard was killed in the line of duty while responding to a disturbance in our community. While we are certain to learn more details in the coming days, I ask for all of you to join me in showing our support as our police officers mourn the loss of their loved one.
A makeshift memorial has been setup at the Police Department for anyone who would like to provide their messages of support. Meanwhile, I ask that you join me in giving your thoughts and prayers to the family of Officer Sherrard and to those who work every day to protect us in the police department.
