An Independence Police officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty has donated a kidney to a Springfield Police Officer.

Officer Blaize Madrid-Evans, 22, was an organ donor.

One of his kidneys went to Springfield Police Officer Mark Priebe Saturday night.

Priebe was injured when he was intentionally hit by a vehicle outside police headquarters in June 2020.

He learned his kidneys were failing a year later and began dialysis.
