August 12, 2011

On Friday, July 8, 2011 at approximately 10:38 p.m. several police officers from the Bismarck Police Department were dispatched to a domestic disturbance call of a man armed with a knife.  Sgt. Steve Kenner eventually located the male suspect who was inside a van with tinted windows parked on the street.  The suspect failed to comply with the Sergeant’s command to show his hands.  The suspect, behind the dark tinted windows, fired a shot from a .45 caliber handgun, striking and killing Sgt. Kenner.  Officer Brad Jerome had arrived on the opposite side of the van and returned fire, striking and disabling the suspect.  A team of officers courageously approached the van (suspect’s condition unknown) in order to rescue Sgt. Kenner, however, he was already gone.  The officers took the suspect into custody.  Sgt. Kenner’s family, wife & 4 kids, are heroes, Officer Brad Jerome is a hero, as well as the officers who approached the van, risking their lives to attempt to help Sgt. Kenner and to take the subject into custody. (Pictured: Officer Jason Bullis stitching with L-R Sgt Cody Trom, Officer Brad Jerome, & Officer Noah Lindelow)
