Sonny Kim, a 27-year veteran of the Cincinnati police department, was shot and killed earlier today by a man attempting to commit “suicide by cop”:
The gunman, 21-year old Trepierre Hummons, died in the shootout as well and is reported to have called 911 on himself to lure officers to his location:
And during a prayer vigil for officer Kim, we’re seeing reports that members of Hummons’ family got into an altercation of some sort with the police allegedly over whether the vigil was for just officer Kim or for Kim and Hummons.
Unbelievable. This thug kills a cop and his family wants a prayer vigil?
Unfortunately, planet Earth.

Family members later returned to the vigil and shook hands with officers in attendance:
