Off-Duty Cop Is Shot Dead While Confronting Three Robbers

An off-duty cop has been shot dead over $83.45 worth of stolen beer when he confronted three suspects robbing a convenience store.

Sergeant Philip Dale Nix saw the trio knocking over a Sheetz on Sandy Ridge Road in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Saturday.

He was allegedly gunned down by Jamere Justice Foster, 18, and died in hospital despite the efforts of a second off-duty policeman and a paramedic.

‘He was a loving husband, father, son and brother with 22 years of service to the department and this community,’ Greensboro Police Chief John Thompson said.

‘We ask for prayers for the family of the fallen officer and our Greensboro PD family.’

Foster was charged with felony first-degree murder, misdemeanor larceny and conspiracy.

John Walter Morrison, 28, was charged with misdemeanor larceny, conspiracy and felony accessory after the fact to first-degree murder.

Both are held without bail.

Zquriah Lepearce Blackwell, 18, was charged with felony accessory after the fact to first-degree murder and was held on a $500,000 bond.

A warrant for her arrested accused her of helping Foster escape after he allegedly shot Nix, and encouraging him to dispose of the gun and getaway car’s license plate.

She also allegedly helped Foster sell the stolen goods.

Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan called the shooting a ‘senseless act of violence’.

‘I am angry, and I am sad. I think those are feelings that are felt throughout this department and throughout this city,’ she said.

Nix was supervisor of the Family Victims Unit when he was killed. His father and other relatives were also police officers.

    Too bad the officer didn’t take at least one out. What kind of parents (if they have 2) raise this crap. Eventually the average citizen will start eliminating this type of trash.
