Cuba Gooding Jr.: Anguish at Death of Dallas Officer He Met

An anguished Cuba Gooding Jr. says he wept at news of the slaying of one of the five Dallas officers ambushed at an anti-police brutality rally last week — having met the victim last February.

The actor's heartfelt response was recorded when a video-photographer asked the actor if he had anything to say to the family of slain Officer Patrick Zamarripa, a five-year veteran and father of a 2-year-old girl who was among the victims of Micah Johnson's shooting rampage. 

"I cried today when I heard that," Gooding Jr. said. "I cried, that’s all I’m saying."

The emotional interview was posted by TMZ.com. 

Gooding Jr. met and posed for a picture with Zamarripa, who served three tours in Iraq with the Navy, and his partner in February.

Zamarripa proudly posted the encounter on his Twitter feed at the time.
