Officer slain in ambush was Army veteran, 28-year officer PDF Print E-mail
A Dallas police officer killed in the ambush at a protest was an Army veteran and father of two serving in his 28th year as an officer, according to reports.

Police said a gunman targeting white police officers from a sniper position at a Black Lives Matter event Thursday night fatally shot Sgt. Michael Smith, 55, and four other officers. Neighbors and loved ones who lived near Smith’s family in nearby Carrollton, Tex., told The Dallas Morning News the devoted church member could often be seen playing softball in his yard with his daughters.

“You couldn’t ask for a more salt of the earth kind of guy,” said family friend Vanessa Smith. “He loved his job and the guys on the force, and he loved his wife and kids. I can’t imagine what his wife and daughters are going through. You just don’t expect it. It’s devastating.”
