SACRAMENTO - The widow of slain P.O.P. (Problem Oriented Policing) officer Danny Oliver shared some personal moments in a heartfelt interview with reporters on Monday.
A strong, yet very emotional Susan Oliver fought back tears when speaking of her late husband.
"He was a prankster. He was a hard worker. And that he gave his life for everyone in his community," Susan said.
The 47-year-old was gunned down Friday in the parking lot of the Motel 6 on Arden Way. Oliver was checking on a suspicious vehicle when authorities say he was shot and killed by suspected gunman, Marcelo Marquez.
"He never said he was afraid of dying or anything like that. He always said, 'you have a little fear, otherwise you're not going to see the things around you that could hurt you,'" Susan recalled.
