On Friday morning, a Cincinnati police officer and an armed civilian were killed in a gunfire incident. The officer, 48-year-old Sonny Kim, went to investigate the civilian after receiving reports that he was misbehaving with a firearm. Kim had been with the Cincinnati Police Department for 27 years. In those years, he received 22 commendations for his service. He leaves behind his wife and three children, all boys.

The city doesn’t have many details on the incident. They don’t know how many shots were fired, but officers were called to break up the struggle that people were seeing in the street. However, they were too late, and both Kim and the suspect died in a Cincinnati hospital later.

This incident happened just a week and a half after the police in Cincinnati devised a plan to control the spike they saw in gun related violence. In the last year, Cincinnati shooting rocketed by 28 percent.

No funeral arrangements for Kim have been released to the public. As always, our hearts and prayers go out to his family and to the city of Cincinnati.
