Rev. Sugden works with the Wisconsin Injured Law Enforcement Officers Resource Council and is stepping up after this tragedy.

“When you find out that he was the shooter, it’s even more difficult because he’s also a victim,” Sugden said. “It hurts. I have a lot of friends who are police officers and one of the first things I learned is that injuries aren’t only physical. There’s emotional, mental, spiritual injuries that can occur in such a high-stress job and such an important job.”
