Police Officer Jim Davies was shot and killed in a friendly fire incident while securing the scene of a crime.

Lakewood officers were responding to a prowler call near West 20th Avenue and Eaton Street when they heard gunfire coming from a house on Eaton Street. The officers took three subjects into custody after one man was observed firing a handgun in front of the house. As multiple officers worked to secure the perimeter of the house Officer Davies was mistaken for an assailant and was fatally shot by another officer. He was pronounced dead on scene.

Officer Davies served with the Lakewood Police Department for six and one half years and was assigned to the Special Enforcement Team. He is survived by his wife and two young children.
