Police Officer Shot and Killed Before His Baby Girl Started Kindergarten – But on Her First Day, She Wasn’t Alone!


Akron, Ohio police officer Justin Winebrenner was shot and killed last fall. His young daughter is growing up without her father, but she is certainly not alone.

At her first day of kindergarten, Charlee was welcomed to school by police officers from around the county. It was a strong show of support for the young girl who obviously misses her father.

Justin’s father, Rob Winebrenner, who is a retired police officer, sent out an invitation to come support his granddaughter on her first day of school. The response was overwhelming.

The officers said they came to let Charlee know that although her dad is gone, they will always support her.
