Prayers are with the officer that is down and the ones doing the house to house search.

Unfortunately the officer did not survive being shot multiple times in the back.

EDIT: RIP Officer Jim Capoot.

He was 43 years and this was his 19th year as a policeman. He died at the Vallejo Kaiser Permanente Medical Center. Apparently the air flight (Calstar, I guess) was canceled as Walnut Creek's John Muir trauma medical center was deemed too far.

Thoughts and prayers for the officers family and co-workers.... and let's hope that the two actors responsible for this go into custody before they have the opportunity to hurt anyone else.

We wear the uniform to show pride and display authority. We wear badges patches and rank to show who we work for and what we do. We wear a gun belt to protect others and a vest to protect ourselves. We wear dark sunglasses to hide our emotions on days like today. Thoughts and prayers to the men and women of Vallejo Pd for the loss of Officer Jim Capoot at the hands of a bank robber.

Jim was a most giving person in the very shot 4 days and 3 nights that I was able to camp next to him and his family this last sumrmer in Coloma. He seemed to find it easy to make sure all were comfortable in and around our campground no matter who they were.I feel that I will be very hard pressed to meet another human being like I remember him, a person one would never forget if you ever met him. This is more than sad for me knowing the pain of his wonderful family. Rest easy Jim, and thank you, Steve
