Officer Shooting Anniversary
The fifth anniversary of the shooting of a Lake City police officer is coming up next week.
32-year-old officer Shawn Schneider was responding to a domestic dispute in Lake City of December 30th, 2011, when he was shot by a 25-year-old man. Schneider died 11 days later.
KTTC TV reports the Lake City Police Department has a display honoring Schneider and his legacy. Some $40,000 has been raised to erect a statue of Schneider in a Lake City park.
