It was just terrible. I asked if we could bring grief counselors down to talk to people. I would urge that if anyone did see that, please call us. Not only for the information we could use for the report, but call us so we can get you some help. Talk to someone. Please talk to your doctor, physician, psychologist. They can help,” said Sgt.
