Tragedy has struck the small community of Greenville, South Carolina. One of the town’s most loved and valuable police officers, Allen Lee Jacobs, has been killed in the line of duty. But the real tragedy is that he’s leaving behind his pregnant wife and unborn child.
Officer Allen Lee Jacobs was shot down by a teenage gang member when police tried to search a house suspected of illegal activity. The officer was the father of two, and one of his children is unborn. He was only 28 when he ran around the corner of the house and was immediately shot several times by a 17-year-old.
The wife was in tears when police came to her house as a group to inform her of her husband’s death. But now she’s shaking off her tears and continuing forward in the only way she knows how to. She recently posed for a series of maternity photos with the police force that considered her husband to be a brother.
