The New York Yankees Express Condolences for Fallen Texas Tech Police Officer [Photo]
In an incredible show of sympathy for fallen Texas Tech police officer Floyd East, Jr., the New York Yankees have sent a beautiful floral arrangement to the Texas Tech PD and the family of Officer East.
The photos above were taken by Patti Andrukat, who works at the Texas Tech Police Department. They were delivered to the department's lobby. "We are overwhelmed by the attention and send prayers to his family for strength and healing," she told us via email.
This came as quite a show of support from folks so far away after the tragedy in Lubbock. I'm glad that the entire Yankees organization made the decision to reach out in such a kind manner.
A memorial fund for Officer East's family has been set up.
Texas Tech police officer Floyd East, Jr. was killed on duty at the department's station Monday evening (Oct. 9). The accused shooter is currently in custody and being held on a $5,000,000 bond. He's been charged with Capital Murder of a Peace Officer.
