A candlelight vigil was held Friday night in honor of a Griffin police officer killed last weekend while working an off-duty security job.

Officer Kevin Jordan was shot early last Saturday morning in a Waffle House parking lot.

Jordan was trying to handcuff a woman who had been kicked out of the restaurant, when another man shot him in the back.

Jordan's brother returned fire, wounding the suspect, who is still hospitalized.

A viewing for Officer Jordan is set for June 8 between 4 and 8 p.m. at Oak Hill Baptist Church. His funeral will also be at Oak Hill Baptist Church June 9 at 2:30 p.m.

The officer will be buried at Westwood Gardens cemetery.

A candlelight vigil was held in Jordan's honor at the old Walmart parking lot in Griffin.

Jordan's son is set to graduate from high school on Saturday.

    Ten time Ironman, Dave Nazaroff recently rode 900 miles on his bicycle...from Nyack, New York...to Georgia. He didn't do it to get in shape, or to win a competition; he did it to raise money for a 11 year old Callie Truelove in Gainesville, Georgia.
