A grand jury will consider evidence next month in the case of a taxicab driver charged with shooting an Alexandria police officer in the head, after nearly a dozen witnesses testified in an Alexandria courtroom Wednesday, weaving together the narrative of the violent encounter and the ensuing high-speed chase.
Alexandria Police Officer Peter Laboy was doing the job he loves when he was viciously shot in the head ("Hundreds turn out to raise funds for wounded Va. officer," Web, March 10). The horror of what transpired has affected many. Officer Laboy, a respected and well-known cop in the community, has prompted a desire for many to help in some way. This was evidenced by the approximately 2,000 people who appeared for the fundraiser at a restaurant in Old Town Alexandria recently. I was pleased to be part of that crowd. The common bond that brought together friends, colleagues and those not personally acquainted with Officer Laboy was heartwarming. It brought home the fact that people do still care about law enforcement officers.
Relatives, friends, and a few hundred unofficial family members turned out in Old Town Alexandria on Sunday to support a police officer critically injured in the line of duty.
Colleagues of the Alexandria Yellow Cab driver accused of shooting an Alexandria police officer said they were stunned to hear one of their own was involved in the incident.
Doctors were cautiously optimistic Thursday about the condition of an Alexandria police officer who suffered a "catastrophic" wound when he was shot in the temple during a routine traffic stop.
