Moment of Silence and Prayer:

Yesterday, our community was rocked by the shear senseless tragedy that befell a young Forest Acres police officer in the line of duty. Greg Alia was a young man, with a young family who was shot and killed at Richland Mall while attempting to apprehend a suspect and keep our neighbors and neighborhood safe. This incident occurred not long after several of our run AOs completed their workouts yesterday and less than 2 miles from the majority of AO locations. I know that many of our brothers have had contact with or at the very least recognized Officer Alia around the area and were devastated to hear the news of his death. YHC did not know Greg personally, but by all accounts he was a dedicated public servant who loved his family.

At 0600, our F3 brothers from #Hammer and #SwampFox converged on the FAPD Headquarters to offer our respects in a moment of silence and prayer for our fallen brother. In solidarity with the rest of F3Columbia this morning, #Brickpile stopped our workout at 0600 to also offer a moment of silence and our prayers for the Alia family and the community.

Much respect, Officer Alia, for doing the hard thing and keeping us safe. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. And, to the family and friends you’ve left behind, may God give you peace and understanding.
