“Out of respect for the Brookhaven police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty last weekend, I will suspend my planned statewide announcements until further notice,” Hood said in a statement.

He added that he will be attending the funerals of the two Brookhaven police officers.

“Please keep the families of Patrolman James White and Corporal Zach Moak and all of the Brookhaven Police Department in your thoughts and prayers,” Hood said.
