On September 4th, Officer Youngstrom was shot in the head during a traffic stop by a motorist, Christopher Boon Lacy. Officer Youngstrom's patrol partner was able to shoot and kill Lacy.
Officer Youngstrom was an organ donor. As he did in life, he is able to serve his fellow mankind thru the gift of giving of his organs. A 29-year-old mother received Youngstrom's left kidney and pancreas; a 52-year old woman received the officer's other kidney; a 63-year-old woman received Youngstrom's liver, and a 50-year-old married father of four who lives in Southern California received Youngstrom's heart.
God Speed Officer Youngstrom.
