The Greece Town Board will recognize one of its police officers who was hurt in the ambush of firefighters in West Webster Christmas Eve.
Officer Jon Ritter was driving to work on Lake Road when William Spengler was shooting at the West Webster Firefighters. Ritter suffered minor injuries when he was hit by shrapnel.
Greece Town Supervisor John Auberger said Ritter was able to take cover and call law enforcement. Auberger said Ritter’s actions saved lives.
Ritter will be honored at the Greece Town Board meeting on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Greece Town Hall.
