Leonard Pennelas-Escobar opened fire on Trooper Edward Andersson early Thursday after the officer had stopped on the interstate and set up flares in a bid to get motorists to slow down. Pennelas-Escobar said something unrecognizable in Spanish before shooting the trooper, and then he started landing blows with his fists and beating the trooper's head on the ground, Department of Public Safety Director Frank Milstead said Monday.

The 37-year-old Pennelas-Escobar was in the country illegally, a drug user and was believed to have once worked as a Mexican police officer, Milstead said. Still, Pennelas-Escobar had no known criminal history.

Andersson arrived at the rollover scene about 55 miles west of downtown Phoenix to find Pennelas-Escobar holding his injured girlfriend, 23-year-old Vanessa Monique Lopez-Ruiz, on the edge of the roadway.

She had been ejected in the high-speed rollover and was later pronounced dead. The cause of the collision hasn't yet been determined. Pennelas-Escobar was believed to have been the vehicle's driver.

Detective Jerry Walker

Texas police detective killed in standoff - CNN.com

Quote:
A Little Elm, Texas, police detective died after being shot by a man barricaded inside a residence, the town's police chief said at a news conference Tuesday night. The suspected gunman was later found dead after the hours-long standoff.

Police detective Jerry Walker, along with a group of officers, was responding to an afternoon 911 call of an armed man in a backyard, Little Elm Police Chief Rodney Harrison said.Officers observed a man with a rifle screaming, according Lt. Orlando Hinojosa. The suspect then ran into the residence, and after a period of talking with officers, began firing his weapon either through a door or window.
Walker, 48, was shot by the suspected gunman, placed in a squad car and transported by helicopter to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries, Harrison said.Video of Walker's body being transported from the hospital showed dozens of officers and emergency responders lining up and saluting the fallen detective. The song "Amazing Grace" could be heard playing on bagpipes in the background as his body was stretchered into an awaiting car.

Walker is the father of four children. His youngest child is a few months old and the oldest is 22 years old.
The police chief called Walker a model officer, who had served with the Little Elm Police Department since 1998.

"Tonight the Town of Little Elm lost a hero," read a statement on the town's Facebook page.

Little Elm Fire Chief Brian Roach confirmed on behalf of the police chief that the standoff ended after the suspect was found dead. No cause of death was given. The location remains an active crime scene and police will be working through the night.

Deputy Colt Allery

North Dakota deputy fatally shot during shootout, suspect dead


North Dakota deputy shot and killed; suspect also dead - StarTribune.com

Quote:
A 29-year-old sheriff's deputy was killed in a shootout with a suspected car thief, who also died, in northern North Dakota on Wednesday night, according to the Rolette County sheriff's office.



Deputy Colt Allery, who had been with the Rolette County Sheriff's department for three months, died at a rural intersection along with the suspect, who law enforcement officers have not yet identified.

A male suspect in a stolen pickup lead four law enforcement officers on an approximately 15-mile chase reaching 85 miles per hour after a vehicle was reported stolen in Devil's Lake at about 6:10 p.m. Wednesday.

Operators of an OnStar vehicle tracking system told law enforcement that the vehicle was headed into neighboring Rolette County, according to the sheriff's office. Onstar trackers slowed the vehicle down to approximately five miles per hour. A shootout then began when officers caught up to it at an intersection.

Though three other law enforcement officers were involved in the shootout, none of the others were hurt.

Allery had been a law enforcement officer for approximately three years, at once point holding a position with tribal police.

Rolette County Sheriff Gerald Medrud described Allery as "a young deputy that was full of spunk" who was "cheerful and happy all the time."

The state Bureau of Criminal Investgation is investigating.

Westwego officer, woman killed in Marrero shooting, JPSO says | NOLA.com

Quote:
An off-duty Westwego police officer shot in the back of the head Friday morning (Jan. 20) has died, according to JPSO. A woman who was shot during the same incident has died as well.

JPSO said the shooting came after domestic dispute between the woman and another person.

Officer Michael Louviere became involved when he saw the silver car crash and he stopped to assist, according to the Westwego Police Department.

According to the Westwego Police Department spokesman, Louviere worked the night shift and was heading home when he witnessed the crash at Ames and Barataria. He got out of his vehicle and asked if anyone need assistance, the spokesman said.

At some point, Louviere was shot in the back of the head. It's unclear when the woman was shot.

According to the spokesman, Louviere has been with the Westwego Police Department for 1.5 years and is a member of the special response team. He also is a former Marine. He's married and has two children.

Louviere was rushed to West Jeff General Hospital, where he died, a spokesman for the police department said. His wife was at the hospital with him, the Westwego spokesman said.

The intersection of Barataria and Ames (map) remained closed while police investigated. As of 9 a.m., there was a heavy police presence in the area, including a JPSO helicopter and a SWAT vehicle.

Regarding the statistics that were posted at the beginning of this thread, I wonder if they include off-duty fatalities. I'm guessing not.

Given that the last guy was driving home from the night shift, I'm guessing he was still in uniform. It doesn't matter much at all (it's still a tragedy), but I wonder if any good samaritan would have met the same fate.

Officer David Fahey

Cleveland officer killed in hit and run crash on Interstate 90 identified as David Fahey

http://www.newsnet5.com/news/local-news/cleveland-metro/cleveland-officer-injured-in-hit-and-run-crash-on-interstate-90-westbound-lanes-closed-at-mckinley

Quote:
CLEVELAND - A Cleveland police officer has died after being hit by a car on Interstate 90 near the Warren Road exit.

Cleveland police identified the officer as 39-year-old David Fahey. He was hired on July 1, 2014 and assigned to the first district.

Police said the officer was struck by a white Toyota Camry that took off after the crash. The suspect vehicle was found on East 31st Street in Lorain around 9:30 a.m.

Israel Alvarez, 44, was taken into custody for aggravated vehicular homicide and felony hit-skip.

At a press conference this morning, Mayor Frank Jackson along with the President of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, Stephen Loomis, and Cleveland City Council President Kevin Kelly offered condolences to the family of Officer Fahey.

"His family is here and we want them to know that we support them. The City of Cleveland is behind them and we give them our sincerest condolences," said Jackson.

Cleveland Chief of Police Calvin Williams reiterated for the driver of the vehicle who fatally hit Fahey to turn himself or herself into police.

"Early this morning, the Division of Police and the city lost a great public servant. He lost his life while serving the City of Cleveland. We are asking for help from the public to identify the driver who hit our officer and left the scene without checking on our officer," said Williams.

"If you're out there, turn yourself in or else we will find you," urged Williams.

An emotional Loomis asked everyone in Cleveland to keep the family in mind during this difficult time."I ask everyone in Cleveland to keep the family in your prayers. Help us find the car and the person involved in this," said Loomis. "Keep all the police officers in your prayers because everyone is going through a really hard time now."

Other emergency crews were already at the scene in that same area of the highway due to a crash involving a van and a fire truck earlier in the morning.

The crash involving the officer occurred in the same area where Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper Kenneth Velez was struck and killed in September 2016.

Officer Eric Mumaw




Quote:
Nashville, TN – Metro Nashville Police Officer Eric Mumaw died in the line of duty and a second hero Metro Nashville Officer was injured after trying to save the life of a woman Thursday morning, February 02, 2017.

Metro Nashville Police Officers had responded to Peeler Park about 4:00 a.m. Thursday morning for a report of a suicidal woman. The woman, Julie Glison, age 40, was located inside a vehicle which was parked on the boat ramp. Two Metro Nashville Officers, fallen hero Officer Mumaw and Metro Nashville Officer Nick Diamond tried to talk to Glison for about 10 minutes. Officer Mumaw was on the driver’s side of the vehicle and Officer Diamond was on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Glison was about to get out of the vehicle when it suddenly started moving backward down the boat ramp. The two Officers tried to get Glison out of the vehicle. Neither Officer could see the end of the boat ramp due to the darkness and both fell into the Cumberland River. Both Officers were carried further into the water by the motion of the vehicle.

A third Metro Nashville Officer, Trent Craig, was also at the scene and tried to rescue the Officers. He ran through the woods along the riverbank “tracking the Officers.” Officer Craig was able to spot the top of Officer Mumaw’s head and jumped into the river to try to help him. However, he was in freezing water up to his neck and was not able to reach Officer Mumaw.

Officer Craig had to be rescued but was treated at the scene and released. Officer Diamond at one point had a grasp on Officer Mumaw but was unable to hold onto to him. Officer Mumaw was last seen about 4:40 AM about 50-60 yards from the boat ramp. The water is estimated to be about 15 feet deep in the area and water temperature was about 49 degrees.

Officer Diamond was rescued and transported to Vanderbilt Medical Hospital for treatment. A massive search began for missing Officer Mumaw with officers scouring the river’s banks. Rescue boats and a helicopter were also used.

Glison was found about an hour after the incident on the riverbank. She was transported to a hospital for further treatment for non-life threatening injuries, according to Fox 17 Nashville. Glison is currently under criminal investigation and is in police cusody because she showed signs of impairment.

A fire department diver located Officer Eric Mumaw’s body at around 8:15 AM.

Don Aaron, Metro Police spokesman, said that both officers “made heroic efforts” to save the woman.

Don Aaron, Metro Nashville PD spokesman, said “The two officers as the car was rolling tried to make heroic efforts to save the woman who was in the vehicle.” A Metro Nashville Fire Department spokesman said that water conditions were “brutal”, with a fast current and cold temperatures.

Metro Nashville Officer Eric Mumaw, age 44, is an 18-year veteran of the agency. He received the Lifesaving Award from the MNPD in 2011. In a statement, the Metro Nashville Police Department said that he “gave his life this morning in service to Nashville,” according to ABC News.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of fallen hero Metro Nashville Officer Eric Mumaw, both blood and blue. Godspeed, sir, we will take it from here. Thank you for your service.

Our thoughts and prayers are also with the hero Officers who tried to rescue Officer Mumaw, Officers Trent Craig and Nick Diamond.

Quote:
Sergeant Greg Meagher died after being exposed to liquid nitrogen fumes while attempting to rescue a woman at a medical facility at 1100 Emmett Street in Augusta.

He and several other deputies had responded to the facility and were told that a woman was unconscious inside. The deputies entered the facility to rescue the woman and were overcome by the fumes. Fire department personnel arrived on the scene and were able to remove Sergeant Meagher and the employee. They were both transported to Augusta University Hospital where Sergeant Meagher passed away.

The other three deputies were treated for their exposure to the toxins.

Sergeant Meagher had served with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office for 33 years. In 2004 he was shot in the face while assigned to a federal narcotics task force.

Gunman who killed Whittier officer had fatally shot another man hours earlier, police say

One officer was killed and a second injured in a shootout with a gang member who was wounded in a Monday morning altercation in Whittier, authorities said.

Three Whittier Police Department officers were responding to the scene of a traffic collision about 8 a.m. when a 26-year-old, recently paroled man driving a stolen car opened fire with a semiautomatic pistol, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina.

Detectives said the alleged gunman, who is expected to survive, is also a suspect in homicide that occurred in East Los Angeles. They believe he stole a vehicle Sunday morning after killing a man, then drove into Whittier, where he encountered the police.

The slain officer was identified as Keith Boyer, a 27-year veteran of the department.Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper broke down in tears recounting Boyer, whom he described as a close friend and beloved member of the department. He said Boyer was a mentor to others in the department and had recently talked about retiring.

Boyer played in a community band that performed for charity. At the police station, he was known for his sunny, friendly disposition and willingness to lend help and offer advice, the chief said.

“He was the best of the best,” Piper said tearfully during a Monday afternoon news conference. "This is an unbelievably senseless tragedy.”Whittier Officer Keith Boyer (Associated Press)Piper said the shooting suspect, whose name has not been made public, was released from custody early. He blamed the early release on a series of new laws designed to reduce incarcerations in California.Neither Piper nor the Sheriff’s Department offered specific information about his record or how he was released early. But the chief said Boyer’s killing showed how these laws have made the streets less safe.

“We need to wake up. Enough is enough,” he said.

Two officers were hit by gunfire and taken to UC Irvine Medical Center, where Boyer was pronounced dead, Corina said. The wounded officer is in stable condition while the suspect was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

The shooter, according to police, had been involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle near Colima Road and Mar Vista Street, and approached the driver he had rear-ended to help push his silver car to the side of a road around the corner.

Police officers arrived in three cars and approached the man, who was seated in the silver car, Corina said. He got out and as officers moved to pat him down, he pulled a gun from his waistband and began shooting at close range.

“He started firing at the officers and they returned fire," Corina said. “We are still looking into that, why he just opened fire.”

Officers believed they were responding to a routine traffic call and did not know the vehicle was stolen when they approached.

"It seems like a simple traffic accident and next thing they know they're in a gunfight,” Corina said, adding that “you never know when you respond to a call, what you are going to run into.”

Corina said both officers were wearing bulletproof vests and were shot in the body.

Police have not identified the shooter pending the ongoing investigation, but described him as a Los Angeles gang member who had been released on parole within the last two weeks and had many tattoos, including on his neck and face. He was driving a stolen car from East L.A.

The accused gunman is suspected of fatally shooting his 46-year-old cousin, Roy Torres, early Monday, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said. Torres was killed at 5:29 a.m. in the 1400 block of Volney Drive in East Los Angeles, according to the department.One officer was killed and a second injured in a shootout with a gang member who was wounded, authorities said.
It was the first fatal shooting of a police officer in Whittier in more than 37 years, Mayor Joe Vinatieri said.

“This is a very sad day for our officers, the families involved, the Whittier Police Department and our community,” Vinatieri said. “But we’re pulling together. And we're going to take care of these families and we're going to take care of this police department.”

Investigators are still trying to piece together what motive the shooter had to fire on officers and have not interviewed him yet because he is being treated at the hospital, Corina said.

Emergency responders at the scene performed CPR on a male officer while wheeling him into an ambulance, said Brian Feinzimer, a freelance photojournalist who was at the scene as authorities responded Monday morning.

Also visible in the eastbound lanes of Mar Vista Street east of Colima Road was a Whittier police SUV with shattered windows and a suspect who was handcuffed facedown on the pavement, Feinzimer said.

The shootout unfolded in a quiet and lushly landscaped neighborhood of suburban tract homes, churches, sports parks and rolling hills.

Near the scene, a woman and young girl dressed in plaid shirts stopped in their SUV and hugged a Whittier police officer at the yellow police tape near the Friendly Hills Country club.

Monday afternoon, a procession of police vehicles traveled from the hospital, accompanying the slain officer’s body to the Orange County coroner’s office. Their cars were greeted by a line of law enforcement officers who saluted as the procession drove by.

The Whittier Police Department has about 128 sworn officers who patrol the cities of Whittier and Santa Fe Springs in southeastern Los Angeles County.

City officials invited the public to attend a prayer vigil 6 p.m. Monday at the Whittier Police Department.

Monday’s shooting marks the third time a police officer in Whittier was slain in the line of duty in the department’s 100-year history. Whittier officers were killed in 1977 and 1979, according to the city.

Boyer is survived by several children.

The lawman also had another life as a drummer. A few times a month for the last two years, he’d drive nearly two hours south to Temecula to play with Mrs. Jones’ Revenge, a classic-rock tribute band that performs at wineries and weddings. He’d split up with his fiancée, who lived in Temecula, but he still came down to make music, band leader Jeff McNeal said.

“It was probably a nice release for him, with the kind of high-stress work he does,” said McNeal, 57, adding that Boyer’s technical skill as a drummer “elevated” the band.

“One of the reasons I didn’t initially ask if he wanted to join was I assumed as a cop, he’s probably a Type A personality, he’s gonna want to be in control. But I was totally wrong about that,” McNeal said. “I was afraid we’d have arguments, but he was extremely enthusiastic and very supportive. Probably the easiest guy in the whole band. Always willing to play. He loved the music. It was his passion.”

“Radar Love” by Golden Earring was one of Boyer’s favorite songs to play, McNeal said.

I don't usually post traffic related deaths ITLOD, but this was in a pursuit...CHP officer dies after motorcycle crash in south Sacramento




http://www.kcra.com/article/crash-sh...ection/8967338

Quote:
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —A California Highway Patrol officer died Wednesday evening in a motorcycle crash in south Sacramento while chasing a suspect, officials said.

Officer Lucas Chellew, 31, was on his motorcycle chasing a man, who was also riding a motorcycle, on eastbound Fruitridge Road when a silver vehicle crossed in front of Chellew about 5:45 p.m. near Stockton Boulevard, the CHP said.

Chellew tried to avoid the vehicle, but hit the right side of the car, causing him to lose control, investigators said.

Chellew suffered head trauma and was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where he died less than 30 minutes later.

"My heart aches on this terribly tragic day for the CHP as we have lost a hero, who swore a sacred and honorable oath to serve and protect the people of California,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said.

Natalie Brunell/KCRAOfficers have not found either the motorcycle rider or the driver of the vehicle that pulled out in front of Chellew. Investigators are working on multiple leads in an effort to find them.

Chellew was a 8-year veteran of the department and was assigned to the south Sacramento division. He leaves behind his wife, a daughter and a son.

Chellew came from a family of CHP officers: his father is a retired CHP captain and his sister is also a CHP officer.

Courtesy of California Highway PatrolGov. Jerry Brown released a statement Wednesday night expressing his condolences:

"Anne and I join all Californians in offering our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Officer Chellew, who worked day and night to keep the people of California safe. Officer Chellew's great courage and sacrifice will never be forgotten."


No other details were released.

CHP uniforms are traditionally khaki-colored with campaign hat and blue-and-gold trouser stripe. Command officers wear a tan combination cap. The dress uniform includes a forest green jacket and royal blue tie (bow tie for motor officers). Cold weather and utility uniforms are dark blue.

RIP Navajo Officer Houston Largo



Quote:
Prewitt, NM – Navajo Nation Police Officer Houston Largo has died after being shot on Saturday night.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, Officer Largo was shot about 11:00 PM after responding to a domestic violence call in Casamero Lake. He was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital where he died about 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Officer Largo was 27-years-old and had five years of service.

A suspect is reported to be in custody at the Eastern Navajo Diné Justice Center, according to the Navajo Times. His name has not been released. The FBI and Navajo Nation are conducting the investigation. The New Mexico State Police and the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the investigation.

No further details have been released. Russell Begaye, Navajo Nation President, said that he’s “praying for the officer and family.” He also said “our officers put themselves in highly volatile situations everyday in addressing domestic violence situations.”

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has called to offer assistance in the case.

Detective Jason Weiland


Police chief: Slain officer 'was a part of our family'


Quote:
WESTON - Everest Metro Chief Wally Sparks choked up as he shared his personal thoughts about Detective Jason Weiland, who died in the line of duty Wednesday during a shooting spree that spanned three different locations south of Wausau.

"Jason was a phenomenal officer, and he was part of our family," Sparks said, his voice emotional at the end of a 15-minute news conference Thursday.Three civilians also died Wednesday, and all four deaths remain under investigation by the state Department of Justice. The victims are Marathon Savings Bank employees Dianne Look, 67, and Karen Barclay, 62, as well as attorney Sara Quirt Sann, 43.

Weiland, 40, was shot as he was establishing a perimeter, said Marathon County Sheriff Scott Parks. Police and a shooting suspect were in a stand-off at the Aspen Street Apartments in Weston on Wednesday afternoon.

"Detective Weiland was well trained. And his brave response likely prevented other deaths," Sparks said Thursday.

For 18 years, Weiland served the Marathon County community as a law enforcement officer. He is a Wausau West High School graduate and in 1998 he graduated from Northcentral Technical College, according to his LinkedIn profile. He launched his career as a corrections officer with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department in 1999.

Weiland worked stints as a police officer in the Marathon City Police Department, a constable in the town of Rib Mountain and a narcotics detective for the Marathon County Sheriff's Department, according to his LinkedIn profile.

He first joined the Everest Metro Police Department in 2002 and became a detective there in 2012.Weiland married in 2003 and is a father of two. He is part of a large, local family, including the Day family on his mother's side, of Day's Bowl-A-Dome. He was also a devoted fan of the Green Bay Packers, Sparks said.

Weiland was the first Everest Metro Police Department officer who has died in the line of duty, according to Sparks.

The department serves Schofield and Weston and formed in 1993. As its officers mourn the loss of Weiland, other departments including Wausau Police and the Marathon County Sheriff's Office will provide services to the area, Parks said.

Justin Terney





22-year-old police officer who was shot overnight in Tecumseh has passed away | KFOR.com

Quote:
TECUMSEH, Okla. – Authorities said the police officer who was shot overnight in Tecumseh has passed away.

"My department is not doing good," said J.R. Kidney, Assistant Chief of Tecumseh Police. "I've been here about 22 years, and this is our first officer-involved shooting. We haven't had to live through this yet."

A community and police department are trying to move forward after losing 22-year-old Justin Terney.

Terney was a rookie with the Tecumseh Police Department, and it was his first year on the force.

"A lot of fellow officers and people in Tecumseh were doing a blood drive. He was losing a lot of blood, so we knew that we needed that. But, unfortunately, they were not able to get some of the bleeding to stop," Kidney said.

Police said around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday night, Terney attempted to pull over a vehicle near Benson Park and Gordon Cooper.

The passenger of the vehicle jumped out of the car and ran from Terney, who pursued him on foot.

Terney was able to tase the suspect, but police said the suspect was unaffected by the taser.

At that point, officers said the suspect, who was identified as 36-year-old Byron James Shepard, allegedly shot Terney three times.

Terney returned fire, striking Shepard approximately four times.

The officer and the suspect were both transported to a local hospital, where Terney underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition.

However, police confirmed the officer succumbed to his injuries and passed away around 9 a.m.

"We've got a lot of support from the Shawnee Police Department, Oklahoma City Police Department. Their chaplains have reached out to us. The OU staff has been remarkable to work with. Just an outpouring of people coming in to help us," Kidney said.

As they say goodbye to Terney, officials with Tecumseh police said it's that support that will help get them through this tough time.

"We really appreciate that. We need everyone to rally around us and support us. We've got guys going through some stuff that they've never been through before," Kidney said.

Shepard also underwent surgery and remains in the ICU.

He was last listed in critical condition.
