Cuba Gooding Jr. Discovers Cop He Took A Photo With Was Killed By Dallas Shooter

Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. had a very specific reaction when he found out the officer he had just met on duty in Dallas, Officer Patrick Zamarripa, was killed in along with four others after being shot by a fanatic.

“I cried today when I heard that,” he told TMZ, according to Independent Journal Review. “I cried. That’s all I’ll say.”

Turns out Gooding isn’t the only one. Dozens of tributes have been made in Zamarripa’s honor since then. Zamarripa was a Navy veteran who served three tours in Iraq as a part of the military police. His girlfriend Kristy, who seems to have taken over his Facebook account, had this to say:

“I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all of your love and support,” she wrote in a post on Facebook. “This is something I never thought could ever happen to us. We were not done spending our lives together. Because of this disgusting display of hate, my daughter will not have her daddy to walk her down the aisle and my son will not have his ‘best buddy’ to play football and baseball with. I finally found the love of my life and now have to endure a lifetime without my lobster.”
