Cop Shot/Killed In Firehouse Building, NY FF "Cool, Calm" Under Fire (The Secret List)

     

Monday, December 24, 2012

All,

As the West Webster community of New York was about to be toned out, unknowingly,for their worst possible situation...west of NY in Wisconsin a fire service related shooting had already happened.

This morning a 30-year-old Wauwatosa (WI) Police Officer was killed by multiple gunshots while on duty.  She was found in a police post which is within the main fire station-which is why we are sharing this additional fire service related tragedy on The Secret List. A homicide investigation is under way and there "are no suspects at this time."
The murdered Police Officer, Jennifer Lynn Sebena, who was married, joined the police department in January 2011. She began as a solo patrol officer with Wauwatosa police in July 2012 and completed probation with the department last month.

WHAT HAPPENED:

Sometime this morning, between 0300-0500 she was shot numerous times and succumbed to those gunshot wounds, losing her life in the Line of Duty. Officer Sebena was believed to be wearing her safety vest at the time she was shot. The investigation is being led by the State Division of Criminal Investigations, within the Justice Department. The chain of events began in the early morning hours when Wauwatosa dispatchers attempted to contact Officer Sebena on her late shift patrol. A call had been put out by her dispatchers to send her to a call for service but she didn't respond. One of their other officers had talked to her earlier in the evening. Naturally, WPD officers were now out looking for Sebena because she "had not responded to her radio."   No call for help from her was ever made and she was later found. Police tape was stretched across an area at the main WFD fire station on Underwood Ave. We have posted some details and a photo on our home page and will post more details as they become available.

WE NORMALLY DO NOT post Law Enforcement related LODD's as we are fire/EMS related-however, being this happened within a police substation in a firehouse, it was relevant.

RIP Police Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena.

 

 

UPDATE FROM NY: HEROIC FIREFIGHTER IS COOL, CALM ON THE RADIO WHILE LITERALLY UNDER FIRE

Despite a serious bullet wound, one of the Firefighters first on scene to the Lake Road fire and Firefighter murders in West Webster (Monroe County NY) remained unruffled as he called for help. He took cover behind his apparatus and described the scene to 911 dispatchers. Here are excerpts from the recording. The entire audio is linked below-same link we sent earlier.


“We are being shot at. Multiple firemen shot, I am shot. I think it’s an assault rifle. We have multiple firemen down, working fire … I’m pretty sure we have 2 DOAs in the street … I am under cover of the fire truck which I have tried to move down the street, which has crashed. I am concerned about leaving the safe area I’m in, trying to move down the street, but I need immediate EMS … I am struck in the lower back and lower leg, both can be deadly so I need immediate EMS … The two victims hit have not moved since they’ve been struck.”


OUTSTANDING. No doubt his actions and calm demeanor, even after being shot, saved the lives of numerous other responding Firefighters, EMTS and Police Officers.

HERE IS THE ENTIRE FIRE RADIO BROADCAST:
