June 4th, 2021, a day that rocked Law Enforcement across Massachusetts in two critical events when two heroes were killed in the line of duty and two others injured.  

Event 1:
Braintree PD Officers Bill Cushing, and partner K9 Kitt, Matt Donoghue, and Dick Seibert entered a wooded area to search for an armed suspect following a domestic violence call. The four officers were immediately ambushed by the suspect who opened fire on them. K9 Kitt was killed by suspect gunfire after making a heroic charge at the suspect to save the lives of his partners.
Officers Bill Cushing and Matt Donoghue suffered multiple gunshot wounds which resulted in on-going hospitalization and continued physical therapy.

Event 2:
Five Worcester PD officers responded to a local pond following calls for a drowning.
Officer Enmanuel “Manny” Familia along with four other officers selflessly and without regard for their own safety, entered the water to save several drowning teens. During the attempt, Officer Familia and a 14 year old victim drown.
Officer Familia’s ultimate sacrifice and the sacrifice of the other Worcester PD officers who entered the water resulted in several lives saved.
