Police Officer Justin Winebrenner, age 32, died on November 16, 2014, at a hospital in Akron, Ohio.

Officer Winebrenner was a member of the Akron Police Department. He had seven years of service with the Department. He had previously served with the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center for 2 years.

Justin was off duty and he and some friends were at a bar in Akron. At about 2:00 a.m., a male patron at the bar became unruly and was ejected from the premises. The man returned a short time later and brandished a handgun at the staff and some of the customers.

Justin and some of his friends stepped in and confronted the man who opened fire. Justin was struck in the chest and a fellow off duty officer suffered a non life threatening wound. Three other bar patrons were also shot and wounded.

Justin was rushed to a local hospital where tragically he passed away.
