The Yakima Police Department’s Command Staff is pictured holding a shawl, made for a Yakima native fighting for his life in Texas. Fort Worth Police Officer Matt Pearce was shot in the line of duty earlier this month and is in critical condition. This shawl, along with a prayer, has been sent to Officer Pearce. The 36-year-old 1998 graduate of West Valley High School in Yakima has a wife and two small girls, ages 3 and 1. Officer Pearce is in critical condition in a Fort Worth Hospital.
