Two Canadian Police Officers Killed During Domestic Call

Father-to-be and ‘snow angel’: Edmonton officers shot and killed on duty remembered, according to Houston Today.

One of the police officers killed in Edmonton was about to be a father for the first time, and the other was called a “snow angel” for going beyond the call of duty to help people.

Const. Brett Ryan, 30, and Const. Travis Jordan, 35, were shot and killed responding to a domestic violence call early Thursday morning.

Ryan, who had been with the Edmonton force for 5 1/2 years, is being remembered as a pillar of the community and a longtime minor hockey referee.
