Eight Gadsden Police officers have received the Medal of Valor following their work in a January incident, in which a suspect allegedly intended to kill police officers.

Police Chief John Crane handed the medals to Sgt. Scott Entrekin, Clark Thompson, Colt Gregory, Jeff Hopper, Steven Hill, Gary Pierce, and Mitch James. Hannah Harwood accepted on behalf of her husband, Jordan Harwood, who is deployed as part of the military.

Capt. Regina May says the incident in question happened January 8, when officers answered alarm calls at Rainbow Food Mart and Auto Zone stores located next to one another in the Alabama City section of Gadsden. Someone had fired shots through the front windows of both windows. As officers arrived, May says the suspect fired on the officers.
