“He really was like a father to me,” Starks said. Starks said that Officer Riner was his detail officer while he was in prison. The officer had such an impact on him that he had Riner’s badge number tattooed on his arm. “If it wasn’t for him…I would have gone back and started selling drugs. The way he spoke to me touched my heart,” Starks said. Starks is a husband, father and grandfather.

He attributes his success out of prison to Riner, adding that his wife also got a tattoo of the number officer’s badge.. The ex-inmates’ story is just one of many that come to Riner a day after he was shot in the parking lot on his way to work. The senior correctional officer had worked for the department for 10 years. Police aren’t sure if it was a random attack or if he was targeted.

They released surveillance video as well as a new photo of the person they are looking for. It was dark when the video was taken, so some images appear grainy, but police are hoping that someone can recognize the person by his clothing or complexion.
