EXCLUSIVE: Shot Miami-Dade cop considers Dalvin Cook his son, sources say

By: Andy Slater

While Dalvin Cook has his pro-day at Florida State, a Miami-Dade cop who considers Cook a child of his is recovering after getting ambushed on the job. 

Terence White, a 26-year-veteran, has ties to the potential first-round draft pick's family.

According to multiple sources, White calls Cook his "son."

Voting records show that White and Cook's mother live at the same address. Late Tuesday night, it was confirmed that Cook's mother is White's girlfriend.

Sources say that White was planning on attending an NFL draft party for the former FSU and Miami Central running back. 

Cook's relationship with White is strained though, according to another source, following his mother's divorce with his biological father.

White remains hospitalized, but is expected to recover from his injuries. The other officer who was shot on Monday night, Charles Woods, was treated and released on Tuesday morning. 

Cook is Florida State's all-time leading rusher.
