An officer with the Mobile (AL) Police Department was seen in a viral social media video talking to a scared six-year-old girl who had just suffered the loss of her cousin—Justin Mooney—who was killed in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting.

DeCynda Brown posted the video to Facebook, capturing her daughter Ray’Ghan and Sergeant Trey Davis talking just outside of the crime scene police tape.

“He just started talking to her, asked her who made her bow, what school she went to,” Brown told Yahoo Lifestyle. “He got so personal with her. He kneeled down, and they were talking for 30 minutes. He was just talking to her as if he knew her. She’s very shy, so the way she talked to him and for him to stop what he was doing to talk to her, it was very nice.”
