Former York Co. lieutenant recalls emotional trauma after shooting, killing suspect

Even when police officers must use gunfire to stop a threat, they often feel guilt, regret, horror and numbness. “It changes your whole life forever,” said former York County Sheriff’s lieutenant Pat Kiefer. Now, York County deputy Terrance Knox is on administrative leave while SLED investigates his shooting of a 70-year-old man who reached for a cane during a traffic stop. The Sheriff’s Office called Knox’s actions “appropriate.”
