Master Public Safety Officer Scotty Richardson, age 33, died in the line of duty on December 21, 2011, in Aiken, South Carolina.

Angels of God, pray for Scotty
He was shot and killed after he and another officer stopped a suspicious vehicle. Officers had been searching for the vehicle in relation to an incident earlier in the evening. After the stop, one of the occupants immediately opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Richardson and striking the other officer in the chest. The second officer's vest saved his life. Scotty was transported to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds. 

Several suspects have been arrested in connection with Officer Richardson's murder.

Scotty was a graduate of South Aiken High School and the University of South Carolina at Aiken. He lived in Columbia. 

Police Officials stated that Scotty was a beloved husband and proud father and that his constant smile was a pleasant sight to all those who knew him.

Scotty is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his wife and three young children.

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 Scotty Richardson is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
