    This story is heartbreaking and there are no words to describe the sadness and pain this family must be feeling tonight. Praying for all the Schmidts and their extended family and especially Mike’s four children and former wife, Wendy. Stay strong and let the strength of the Lord carry you through this very difficult time. You have an incredible community that loves all of you and is here to support you.

    Let’s also remember the brave police officers who walked into a shooting. They put their lives at risk and also have families.

    Sounds like he had quite a stash of drugs and fake IDs. Even liked smoking pot out of a penis-shaped pipe:

    Inside the safe, police also found a “penis shaped” marijuana pipe and 10 driver’s licenses. The safe also contained “white and yellow” pills in clear plastic baggies, “white, yellow, orange, blue or brown pills” in a bottle labeled Alprazolam, an anti-anxiety medication, the records show. The Alprazolam had been prescribed to him.
