Christian was killed Tuesday while investigating a car-jacking when he was allegedly shot by Jamie Hood.  33 year old Hood also allegedly shot Officer Tony Howard, who suffered a severe injury and is recuperating from surgery. During the ceremony Pastor Randy Crowe said the death of Officer Christian was a tremendous loss.
