Missouri police officer shot while transporting prisoner
Trenton police officer Jasmine Diab was shot Friday while transporting an inmate to St. Joseph. The patrol says she was shot after a struggle occurred inside her police vehicle.
Daviess County prosecutors on Saturday charged the inmate, 38-year-old Jamey Aaron Griffin, with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
Griffin was shot in the hand during the struggle.
Friends gathered Sunday in Trenton for a prayer service to support Diab. KQ2 reports that Diab’s friend, Kendra Lickteig, said the officer was smiling and in good spirits after undergoing a second surgery Sunday morning.
The patrol’s investigation into the shooting is continuing.
