Trooper Trevor Casper killed while trying to apprehend a suspected bank robber. Trooper had graduated the Patrol Academy in December, and yesterday was his first day in the field solo after training.
"Trooper Casper located the second vehicle as it was being driven through Fond du Lac and began following it. The vehicle stopped near the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Johnson Street and the man opened fire on Trooper Casper. Trooper Casper returned fire and both he and the subject were killed."
On a more personal note, my brother went through the academy at the same time as Trooper Casper. It's pretty scary that it very well could have been him in that seat.
