Michelle Patrick, widow of Mendota Heights Officer Scott Patrick, held a news conference at the intersection of Dodd Road and Smith Avenue in West St. Paul on Friday night.

Michelle was joined by her two daughters, along with other family members.

The site was the location of her husband's fatal shooting on Wednesday. A memorial site has popped up in the area to honor Scott.

"I want to express my deep, heartfelt gratitude for the many, many thoughts, condolences, prayers, well wishes, and kindness offered on our behalf," Michelle said.

"I chose to offer my thanks right here, near this completely spontaneous display at this profoundly senseless tragic location. It symbolizes a greater depth of feeling and love that overwhelms us and moves us, which cannot really, adequately, describe how this feels and what it means to me."

Scott's brother, Mike Brue, was also present and answered questions.
