UPDATE: The Sheffield Police Department said Sgt. Nick Risner, one of two officers shot in the line of duty on Friday, died from his injuries at a Huntsville hospital Saturday morning. Risner had been on the force for eight years.
“Sgt. Risner performed a heroic act by protecting the Shoal’s Community from the shooter from entering the Walmart parking lot,” Sheffield Police Chief Ricky Terry said. “Sgt. Risner died a hero, and his legacy and memory will be with Sheffield Police Department and the Sheffield Community forever.”
The chief added, “The justice system failed not only Sgt. Nick Risner, but his family and everyone who has been affected by his passing. This incident should have never happened because a coward who should still be in prison was walking the streets.”
Brian Lansing Martin, the 41-year-old man accused of shooting Risner, was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2013. Martin was released in 2016 after serving only three years.
Disappointed by the reaction of the partner officer…..
