About the wod
Background: This hero workout is dedicated to Ptlm. Cassie Johnson, a Charleston, West Virginia police officer shot in the line of duty, who died December 3, 2020.
Police Officer Cassie Johnson responded to a report of an SUV parked in someone’s driveway. The driver of the vehicle got into a verbal dispute with Officer Johnson when she arrived on location. At some point during the confrontation, the suspect pulled a gun and callously shot her in the face. Though gravely wounded, Cassie was able to draw her service weapon and get off two rounds which struck the suspect in his chest before she collapsed. For two days doctors worked tirelessly to save the officer, but it was eventually determined that Cassie’s wounds would be unsurvivable. She remained on life support so that her organs could be donated to help save others.
