Funeral arrangements have been set for an off-duty Spalding County police officer who was fatally shot while working security last week outside a Waffle House.
A viewing for Officer Kevin Jordan is set for June 8 at the Oak Hill Baptist Church between 4 and 8 p.m. Oak Hill Baptist Church will also host Jordan's funeral June 9 at 2:30 p.m. and the officer will be buried at Westwood Gardens cemetery.
A memorial outside a Waffle House on U.S. 1941 continues to grow as people mourn the death of the 43-year-old Griffin officer who leaves behind seven children.
Authorities have said Jordan was working an overnight shift at a Waffle House restaurant and was fatally shot during a fight with three people who were asked to leave the business.
Michael Dwayne Bowman, is in Atlanta Medical Center in critical condition after he was shot by the officer's brother, who said his only regret was that Bowman survived.
Investigators have said Jordan's brother was visiting and shot the man accused of shooting the officer.
"My only regret, I don't want to be bitter. My only regret, I didn't kill him," said Raymond Jordan.
