Hello Everyone,

I'm calling on everyone to help out Officer Sean Shelton who was shot in the line of duty. Patrolman Sean Shelton was shot twice by an ambusher in a home on Sunday Febuary 07, 2010. Officer Shelton was airlifted to the Med in Memphis, TN late Sunday night. Officer Shelton entered a home on Polland Rd after a woman, returning home feared suspect Lawrence Richardson was inside. The woman had been treatened by Richardson, an ex-boyfriend. The lights in the house were turned off and she knew something was wrong, so she called the officer to check out the house.

The woman's daughter was also present when Officer Shelton entered the dark house.

Officer Shelton did an excellent job.

It's believed that Richardson's game plan was to ambush the mother and daughter. Richardson secured rope and plastic ties to the coffee table, readying it to hold down his victim's. A butcher Knife and a 22 Caliber Rifle were found in the home. See attached memo.

Officer Shelton works for the Crenshaw Police Department, and please pass this e-mail alone in your contact list. Thank you all for your help and support on this matter
