Woodall was shot and killed Monday night in west Edmonton. He was one of several officers who arrived at a home on an arrest warrant when they were fired upon. Sgt. Jason Harley, 38, was treated for a gunshot to his lower back and was later released from hospital.
“His job was to protect all us from harm,” said Edmonton police chief Rod Knecht in a news conference Monday night.
“He was a truly ebullient man,” said Det. Insp. Jim Faulkner with the Greater Manchester Police, where Woodall started his police career, “always volunteering for new challenges and experiences.”
“He was extremely keen to learn and always had a smile on his face! He would do anything for any of his colleagues.”
Woodall leaves behind his wife Claire, sons Gabe and Callen, as well as family members, many of whom still live in Manchester.
