William Eric Freeman
Birth: Jan. 31, 1971
Texas, USA
Death: Dec. 15, 2007
Huntsville
Madison County
Alabama, USA

William Eric Freeman was born in Texas but grew up near Baton Rouge, LA. Officer Freeman was a police officer with the Huntsville, Alabama police department. At approximately 8:51PM on the night of December 14, 2007 Officer Freeman and Officer Lambert arrived at the scene of a traffic accident. The officers found Kenneth Clarence Shipp 53 sitting on the curb. Shipp had been drinking and was the likely cause of the accident. When the officers attempted to arrest Shipp he raised his arm and shot Officer Freeman in the face. Eric was rushed by HEMSI to Huntsville Hospital at approximately 9PM December 14, 2007. He lived through the night but died from the gun shot to his head at 9:38AM December 15, 2007. Eric was a highly decorated police officer and had been on the Huntsville, Alabama police force for about 3 years. Eric leaves behind his wife Leslie; his five children Cole 12, Cameron 11, Austin 9, Emily 7, and Elijah 2. The story of Eric Freeman touched my heart and I have to admit upon hearing of him dying, I cried.
