A Grieving Colorado Officer Is Comforted By A Furry Friend

Huffington Post reporter Ryan Grenoble captured this heartbreaking photo of a crying University of Colorado police officer being comforted by a mascot for the school's Colorado Springs campus, in the wake of the death of Garrett Swasey, an officer on the campus police force. Swasey was killed during a standoff with a gunman at a Planned Parenthood clinic on Friday, in which two civilians were also killed.

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly referred to the officer as a member of the Colorado Springs police force.
