Officer Alfred Gordon was shot and killed while attempting to take police action during an off duty robbery attempt.
He had gone to an ATM at the intersection of Silver Star and North Hiawassee Roads, in Orange County, at approximately 1:00 am. As he returned to his car he was approached by two juveniles armed with a handgun.
Officer Gordon drew his off duty weapon but was shot twice before being able to fire. He was found in his car with his gun on his lap a short time later by an off duty Orange County Sheriff's Office deputy. His department identification was found on the ground nearby.
Two juveniles were arrested two days later and charged in connection with Officer Gordon's murder. One of the juveniles had been released from prison only weeks earlier after serving several years for an armed robbery.
Officer Gordon was a veteran of the US Army where he served as an MP for 11 years. He had served with the Orlando Police Department for 18 1/2 years, and was assigned to the Orlando International Airport. He is survived by his son.Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
