Rest in Peace Brother....:fallenofficer:
That is a horrible way to go. May he rest in peace and never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace.
May the guilty party burn in hell for all eternity.
God bless you Brother.
Be at peace.
A foot pursuit ensued and Sgt. Szczerba chased the subject down Roosevelt Avenue. Once he caught up to the subject, a struggle took place during which time Sgt. Szczerba was stabbed and fatally wounded.
Other officers arrived on scene moments later and attempted to take the suspect into custody. The suspect continued to actively resist by fighting other officers. Before the struggle ended, three additional officers also sustained minor injuries.
Several officers performed CPR on Sgt. Szczerba before the medics arrived. Sgt. Szczerba was transported to the Christiana Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Sergeant was killed and three (3) other LEOs injured.
RIP Sergeant Szczerba. Condolences to his family.
Prayers for quick and full recoveries to the other 3 LEOs.
For the folks with Penn State connections like me, I found out today that this is the uncle of PSU tight end Andrew Szczerba. Prayers for the family.
