The family of a retired Stockton police officer who was killed in a hit-and-run crash said they were relieved that the suspect was caught, but as still in pain.
Jimmy Pendergrass, 70, was killed Tuesday morning while he was on his way to the Stockton Police Department, where he worked part-time.
"We are broken; there is no other way to describe it," Pendergrass's daughter-in-law Kristina Pendergrass cried. "He was the heart of our family. We are just going through the motions."
Kristina Pendergrass fought back tears during a news conference at the Stockton Police Department Saturday morning. Faith, one of Pendergrass' two granddaughters, was by her side.
