Brandy Roell, Mother of three and SAPD officer – Shot in the line of duty.


My wifes best friend, Brandy Roell a 30 year old rookie with the San Antonio Police Department was shot on Monday night while trying to issue a warrant for Alex Vargas.

Update 10/6/09:
Many of these stories have incorrect information, including the stories from 2009. After Brandy was shot and laying at the bottom of the stairs, she crawled out to the door of the house before being pulled to safety. I hate to see the news media take anything away from Brandy’s AMAZING story!
