Anniversary of Police Officer's Death
It’s been four years since Anniston Police Officer Justin Sollohub was fatally injured from a gunshot wound sustained while involved in a foot pursuit. He was shot once in the head by Joshua Russell. Sollohub’s mom Jeniffer Morris says she memorializes her son on today’s date because this is the day his life with his family ended. She says she got up this morning thinking of how people can show their appreciation to the many brave members of law enforcement. She says her son lived doing what he wanted to do. Russell was sentenced to death on December 16th, 2013. Sollohub had served with the Anniston Police Department for 2 years.
