Shots fired, lives changed
Broken. A term used by Lincoln Police Officer Angela Sands to represent her emotional state following a cold, deadly night in a Lincoln neighborhood.
Sands, now the Public Information Officer for the Lincoln Police Department, had been on the force for three years when she took a bullet to the chest outside a home near 73rd and Adams streets.
Without the protection of a Kevlar vest, it is likely her story would have to be told a different way.
She recalled the events of the frigid night with precision – a story undoubtedly looped in her mind without relief.
From the initial call, to the deadly conclusion, Sands remembered.
