Louisville officer shot in the line of duty shows up for roll call 1 night later
One of two Louisville, Ky., police officers who were shot during a night of unrest Wednesday appeared for roll call less than 24 hours after the attack.
Wearing a sweater and shorts, Maj. Aubrey Gregory was greeted with a round of applause from fellow officers as he entered a room where the roll call was being held. Gregory, commander of the Louisville Metro Police Department's Special Operation Division, was also leading the department's efforts during Wednesday's protest, interim police Chief Robert Schroeder said during a Thursday morning news briefing.
"We’re happy to share this short video of Majory Gregory [sic], walking in to one of our roll calls less than 24 hours after being shot," the department posted to its Facebook page.
