    Phoenix Officer Down

    PHOENIX – A Phoenix police officer shot while investigating a forgery in progress at a check-cashing store died late Friday night at a hospital, authorities said.

    Officer George Cortez, 23, was a two-year veteran of the department, police said.

    Police Chief Jack Harris said Cortez was attempting to apprehend a suspect at the check-cashing business in west Phoenix when he was shot.

    The male suspect fled the scene in a vehicle and remains at large, police said.

    Cortez, who was married with two young children, was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and was later pronounced dead, according to authorities.

    RIP Brother! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the fallen.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    Same here. And there have been so many this year. Sometimes I don't know what to say.

    I'm truly sadden every time I hear of an officer down. This is such a bad year for officer deaths. Please do all you can possibly do to stay safe. Bless you all.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Believe me it touches me, too. It's even worse if the officer was someone you knew. There isn't a day that goes by without me thinking of my friend and his family. Stay safe.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    At a forgery in progress. Think about that. How many of us would have been mentally prepared to get into a life/death situation in response to that kind of call. Keep your eyes open and always have "the plan". Stay safe.

    Rest in peace.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
