The Greece police officer credited with saving lives during the deadly Christmas Eve shootings in Webster will receive a public honor later this month.
Officer Jon Ritter will be honored by Town of Greece officials during a public ceremony Jan. 15 at Town Hall. The 19-year veteran is credited with saving lives for establishing a perimeter and keeping people away from the scene in Webster last month when gunman William Spengler Jr. fatally shot two Webster firefighters and wounded two others.
Ritter will receive a proclamation from the Town Board and an award from Greece Police Chief Todd Baxter.
