Huntsville officer dies from gunshot wound; suspect
Posted by Niki Doyle December 15, 2007 12:28 PM
A Huntsville police officer shot Friday night has died from his wound, Huntsville police said this afternoon.
The announcement was made at police headquarters on Wheeler Avenue that officer William Eric Freeman, 36, of Hazel Green, died this morning.
Police Chief Henry Reyes said Kenneth Shipp has been charged with capital murder.
Reyes said Freeman and officer Kevin Lambert had been called to investigate a traffic accident with injuries on Bailey Cove Road just north of Weatherly Road at 8:43 p.m. When they arrived at 8:51 p.m., the chief said, they found Shipp sitting on the curb.
As the officers tried to arrest him for DUI, Reyes said, Shipp pulled a pistol and shot Freeman in the head. Lambert began struggling with Shipp, Reyes said, and two bystanders helped Lambert subdue him.
Freeman was married and had five children.
A fund has been set up at Redstone Federal Credit Union as the WAFF 48 Officer William Eric Freeman Fund. People can make donations at all Redstone Federal Credit Unions starting today.
May God watch over and give strength to this family and agency!Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory!

5 kids? oh god.. how awfulhttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

I went to high school with Eric. I saw him while he was in the academy and got to congratulate him for making the cut and getting on the force. Saw him a few times afterward. He always seemed proud to be an officer. This is terribly sad. HPD had helped this guy earlier in the year when his son shot him in the leg or foot and then he up an guns an officer down to avoid a DUI????
