Drugs Winning the War on Drugs

Detective Jarrod Shivers, a 34-year-old father, was shot as he was trying to enter at the house in the street’s 900 block around 8:30 p.m. He and several other officers were there with a search warrant as part of a drug investigation, police said. Shivers was pronounced dead at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. He left behind a wife and three children – ages 2, 8 and 14.
Police arrested 28-year-old Ryan David Frederick, who lived at the home, and charged him with first-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He is being held in the Chesapeake City Jail.
Frederick said in a jailhouse interview Friday he had no idea a police officer was on the other side of the door when he opened fire. “No, sir,” he told WAVY-TV. “I just wish I knew who they were,” he said. “I didn’t want any trouble.”
“I thought it was the person who had broken into my house the other day,” he said.
“They are undercover detectives,” Golden said. As such, they would typically be in street clothes. But, when serving warrants, even undercover officers “usually have something that says ‘police,’” she said.
The article doesn’t say whether drugs were found.
