The entire U.S. Soccer Heroes organization today mourns the tragic shooting death of Jersey City Police Officer, Melvin Santiago, who was killed in the line of duty early this morning in Jersey City.
Officer Santiago was responding to a robbery at a Walgreens Pharmacy. The suspect has also been killed.
Officer Santiago is the 15th shooting victim in the city since the beginning of 2014.
We send our thoughts and prayers to the Santiago family.
