Justin Sollohub - Law Enforcement - Alabama
Police Officer Justin Sollohub, age 27, died in the line of duty on August 24, 2011, in Anniston, Alabama.
Officer Sollohub was on patrol at about 11:00 am when he stopped his vehicle to make contact with a pedestrian. As Officer Sollohub exited his patrol car the man fled on foot. Justin chased the man around the side of a house when Justin was shot once in the head. A responding officer located Justin and immediately began tending to his wound. He was transported to a local hospital before being flown to Birmingham. He remained on life support until his organs could be donated.
The man who shot Justin Sollohub was arrested later in the day after a massive manhunt. He faces capital murder charges in connection with this murder.
Officer Sollohub had served with the Anniston Police Department for two years.
Justin is survived by many loving family members and friends, including his parents.
Pray for all who die in the line of duty.
Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Justin Sollohub is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
