On 05/29/20 two of our Protective Security Officers were ambushed in an act of violent cowardice. Both officers were shot while on duty protecting the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building located in Oakland, CA. Tragically, Dave Patrick Underwood passed away due to the injuries he suffered. Our other officer on scene also suffered multiple injuries from the shooting and is in serious condition. We as his fellow officers want to express our deepest sympathies to the officers involved and their families by this senseless act of violence. In order to support our brothers in arms and their families, we are asking for anyone to help support these families by donating whatever they can to this cause. The Underwood family is fully aware of this campaign and I send them all my loving thoughts and prayers. My name is Jennifer Tong, and I am both officers' supervisor on the federal contract. I have worked side by side with both men and cannot describe the pain we as their brothers in arms feel. Please be aware that all funds accrued from this campaign will be split in half. One half will be going to Officer Underwood's next of kin and the other half will be going to our injured officer to help all parties during this tragic time.
