Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Westfield, IL)

WESTVILLE — A performance evaluation between a local chemical company president and a longtime employee turned deadly the day after Christmas.

About 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a call of shots fired came into Vermilion County’s 911 center from DynaChem Inc., a chemical company south of Westville, said Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn.

DynaChem’s president had been doing a performance evaluation of an employee who had worked at the facility for more than 20 years, Hartshorn said, when the worker pulled a handgun from a briefcase. He shot his boss twice — once in the head and once in the hip — and then turned the gun on himself, taking his own life, according to Hartshorn.

Keith Rife, president and CEO of DynaChem, according to the company’s website, did not suffer life-threatening injuries, Hartshorn said. Rife was rushed by ambulance to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

The employee, chemist Wayne Woodson of Georgetown, was pronounced dead at the scene. Woodson is listed on DynaChem’s website as its director of new technologies.

“All we know is something went wrong in the performance evaluation,” Hartshorn said.

Hartshorn said Rife managed to get out of the office on his own and into a hallway where other employees helped him and called 911.

Authorities today publicly identified two men shot — one fatally — at a Pine Hills apartment on Christmas Day.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a gunman forced his way into a unit at West Oaks Apartments through a window about 5:30 p.m. and shot two men, before shooting himself to death.

Investigators say the shooter, whose name has not been released, fired shots through the door of the apartment, then shot out a side window and broke into the unit, which houses two couples.

Once inside the apartment, the gunman shot 24-year-old Austin Duink and 21-year-old Donovan Cope, deputies say. Two female occupants fled the apartment, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The gunman then shot himself, according to investigators.

Duink was also fatally wounded. Cope, who was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, suffered serious but not-life-threatening injuries, the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement today.

According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, George Gerald Easterly Jr. forced his way into a unit at West Oaks Apartments and shot two men, 24-year-old Austin Duink and Donovan Cope, 21.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Wichita, KS)

male

A man who walked into a gift shop Thursday and shot his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend before turning the shotgun on himself has died, Wichita police confirmed on Monday.

The 40-year-old man shot himself in the head shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, 2600 E. Douglas, and died just before 5 p.m. Friday at Wesley Medical Center, Capt. Brent Allred said.

Police said he went into the boutique and ordered everyone in the shop to leave except his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend and the 46-year-old man who is her new boyfriend. She fled out a back door with others, but the boyfriend was shot as he walked toward the front of the store to confront the shooter.

The victim left the store, heard another shot and thought his girlfriend might be in danger, so he broke a window on the west side of the business as a distraction, police said. When he re-entered the store, he found the shooter on the floor.

Both victims were taken to Wesley for treatment, police said.

WICHITA, Kan. — UPDATE: The man accused of shooting another and then himself at an east Wichita business Thursday afternoon has died.

The shooting happened around 2:15 p.m. at the Flying Pig Gift Boutique, a resale shop in the 2600 block of east Douglas. That’s two blocks east of Grove.

According to Wichita Police, a 40-year-old man walked into the store, which is owned by his 31-year-old ex-girlfriend. He was carrying a shotgun and asked everyone inside to leave, saying he was looking for two people.

His ex-girlfriend left the store through the backdoor at the same time her current 46-year-old boyfriend walked in.

The suspect confronted the other man, then shot him in the leg/groin area. The 46-year-old was able to get out of the store, then heard two more shots. He peeked in through a window and saw the suspect had shot himself in the head.

Police arrived, and both men were rushed to a local hospital.

The victim is now listed in good condition and is expected to be released on Saturday.

The suspect passed away at around 5 p.m. Friday, his sister said. She also said that despite police reports saying he was expected to recover, he had a slim chance of survival. No names were released.

Police believe the shooting was domestic-related. Officers say the suspect had sought out his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

The 46-year-old had earlier reported to police earlier this month that the suspect had threatened him over the phone.

Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Memphis, TN)

female

The Memphis Police Department released new details Thursday in what appears to be a murder-suicide that left two dead and one critically injured in a Binghamton apartment complex the day before.

After a day of silence from the department about the circumstances of the bloody encounter, the murder-suicide investigation appears to confirm the speculations of neighbors and onlookers who watched as police secured the crime scene after the shootings.

When officers reached the scene at 1:30 Wednesday afternoon, a 51-year-old woman was already lying on the walkway outside the second-floor apartment suffering from a gunshot wound.

Inside they found a 24-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man shot dead. A 6-month-old baby, who appeared to be unharmed, was lying next to the dead man. The infant was taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital as a precaution.

There were also two other children inside the apartment, ages 4 and 3. Both here unharmed, police said, and they have since been released into the care of a family member.

The injured woman remained in critical condition at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis late Thursday.

Police have not released the names of any of the victims, and did not specify which of the adults they suspect did the shooting.

When police learned of the shooting, it was reported that two women had been shot. Since then, the suspect also was shot.

The shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

female

A man apparently shot and wounded his ex-wife inside her Pearland home Wednesday before fatally shooting himself, authorities said.

Brazoria County Sheriff’s deputies responding to a shooting found the two about 3 p.m. at her home in the 2400 block of Woodbury.

The man was dead and his estranged wife was taken by Life Flight helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Her condition wasn’t known Wednesday night but deputies said she was still alive.

Detectives said the case remains under investigation and they have not officially confirmed a possible motive. But, they believe it was an attempted murder-suicide. There were no signs of forced entry into the woman’s home and the estranged couple was found together with a weapon.

LAKEWOOD, Wash. — A domestic dispute that occurred in East Tacoma early Saturday morning turned deadly in Lakewood.

After the dispute near 2076 East 56th St. a man left and came back with a gun. Tacoma police said he then shot his girlfriend’s friend in the stomach. The friend was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

He later underwent surgery and is now in stable condition.

By the time police arrived at the scene the suspect had fled.

Soon after Lakewood police located the suspect’s car. That brought them to the Four Fountains Apartments, on Thunderbird Parkway South in Lakewood.

When police arrived at that apartment complex, a woman told them the suspect was in her apartment.

As SWAT and police came to the unit, they heard gunshots and found the suspect dead inside.
A detective said there were two shots in the ceiling and one shot fatally wounded the suspect.
Tacoma police have not identified the people involved and do not know where they are from.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Magalia, CA)

male

MAGALIA — The Butte County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of those involved in Thursday’s attempted murder-suicide in Magalia.

Butte County sheriff’s deputies arrived on Northwood Drive at 10:45 a.m. to find Kirk Bullis, 46, injured with a gunshot wound and Stephen Carl Olson, 70, dead in his backyard with a gunshot wound to his head.

Olson went to Bullis’ house and shot him, then returned home and killed himself, Sgt. Jason Hail said.

Due to a policy change in 2007, Bullis was able to be treated by medics prior to the crime scene being secured by law enforcement, sheriff’s media liaison Miranda Bowersox said.

The policy change came about in an effort to provide injured individuals needed medical services quicker. The change is credited with saving Bullis’ life.

“In the past, first responders that weren’t law enforcement weren’t able to go onto a scene that was not secure due to safety issues,” Bowersox said. “That policy proved to be very helpful.”

Paramedics were able to remove Bullis from the scene via ambulance and take him to a local hospital, Bowersox said.

He added there was some history between Bullis and Olson regarding music complaints, and deputies were interviewing witnesses to learn more about the dispute.

Neighbors told The Post that the two men have long had disputes over loud music.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Spring Hill, TN)

female

A man died and his wife was hospitalized after gunfire rattled their quiet neighborhood in Spring Hill.

Police identified the two people shot as Robert and Sue Land, a beloved couple in their 60s.

Apparently married for decades, it remains a mystery how it all ended this way Wednesday morning along Freemantle Circle in the Cherry Grove community.

“They were great people. They were very easygoing,” said neighbor Chris Stammen.

Stammen lives next door to the Lands and said he cannot believe what happened inside their home.

“(I’m) just shocked. I figured somebody broke in. And you know, because they said, they had said there was gunshots, and I thought somebody broke in,” Stammen said. “It just makes no sense. Like I said, these are the most loving people I’ve ever met.”

Sue Land called 911 just after 4:15 a.m., with multiple gunshot wounds.

But when police arrived, they also found her husband shot dead in their master bedroom.

More details emerged Tuesday about the shootings of Robert J. Land, 63, and his wife, Sue C. Land, 60, although police are still not ready to discuss the nature of the incident pending further investigation.

Robert Land was found dead, and his wife, critically injured, suffering multiple gunshot wounds when police responded to an early morning 911 call on Nov. 13 made from the Land’s home in the upscale Cherry Grove 2 subdivision.

Spring Hill Police Lt. Justin Whitwell said a handgun was found in the area of Robert Land’s body, one of “multiple” firearms found in the home. He said all the weapons were being sent to Nashville for ballistics tests, and police will await those results before identifying which, if any, was used in the shootings.

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Spring Hill Police have determined that a shooting that left a man dead and his wife seriously injured late last year was an attempted murder-suicide.

Police said Robert Land shot his wife, Sue, multiple times on the morning of November 13, 2013, at their home on Fremantle Drive.

Land then shot and killed himself, according to police.

Myron Meador

OELWEIN | Myron Meador, the alleged shooter in an attempted murder-suicide this week in Fayette County, succumbed to his wounds Wednesday.

Meador, 44, of Oelwein, died at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a death notice released by Sanders Funeral Service.

On Tuesday morning, Oelwein police found Meador’s wife, Niki Meador, 38, with multiple gunshot wounds inside her home at 170 10th Ave. N.E. Myron Meador was also found at the residence.

Niki Meador was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, then airlifted to Iowa City.

Niki Meador sought help for domestic abuse last year, according to court records, and her husband’s criminal record included a conviction for domestic violence involving a gun.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire about 7 a.m. Tuesday. Police witnessed “active gunfire from inside the residence and began to engage the occupants,” according to the Oelwein Police Department.

OELWEIN, Iowa – An Oelwein woman involved in a shooting last month has been released from the hospital.

Authorities said Myron Meador, 44, shot at his wife Niki Meador, 38, multiple times on Oct. 16 before turning the gun on himself. Myron Meador died at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics a day later.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home in the 100 block of 10th Avenue NW in Oelwein just before 7 a.m. When officers arrived, they said there was active gunfire inside the home. Officers said Myron Meador left his home shortly after the shooting but was later detained and taken to an Oelwein hospital where he died. They found Niki Meador in the couple’s home. She was transported by air to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Meador, 44, of Oelwein, died at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a death notice released by Sanders Funeral Service.

On Tuesday morning, Oelwein police found Meador’s wife, Niki Meador, 38, with multiple gunshot wounds inside her home at 170 10th Ave. N.E. Myron Meador was also found at the residence.

Niki Meador was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, then airlifted to Iowa City.

Niki Meador sought help for domestic abuse last year, according to court records, and her husband’s criminal record included a conviction for domestic violence involving a gun.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire about 7 a.m. Tuesday. Police witnessed “active gunfire from inside the residence and began to engage the occupants,” according to the Oelwein Police Department.

OELWEIN, Iowa – An Oelwein woman involved in a shooting last month has been released from the hospital.

Authorities said Myron Meador, 44, shot at his wife Niki Meador, 38, multiple times on Oct. 16 before turning the gun on himself. Myron Meador died at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics a day later.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home in the 100 block of 10th Avenue NW in Oelwein just before 7 a.m. When officers arrived, they said there was active gunfire inside the home. Officers said Myron Meador left his home shortly after the shooting but was later detained and taken to an Oelwein hospital where he died. They found Niki Meador in the couple’s home. She was transported by air to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Las Vegas, NV)

female

NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — The 67-year-old man who killed himself Saturday after shooting his estranged 23-year-old wife has been identified.

Ronnie Lee Boal of North Las Vegas died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Clark County coroner’s office. The shooting was ruled a suicide.

North Las Vegas police Sgt. Tim Bedwell said the shooting was the result of a domestic fight at a home in the 3500 block of Cantura Crest near Ann Road and Allen Lane shortly after noon.

A North Las Vegas news release says the preliminary investigation indicates the husband and wife were separated. The woman went to her former home to exchange some sort of property when a dispute erupted and the husband shot his wife. She made it into the front yard before collapsing. A neighbor, armed with a handgun, rescued the woman and moved her to safety.

Officers found the man’s 23-year-old wife a few doors west of the home. She was suffering from at least one gunshot wound and was transported to UMC Trauma.

Arriving officers confronted another armed man across the street from the scene. Believing him to be the shooter, they disarmed him. As other officers searched the man, the true shooter appeared in the door of the house. Officers ordered him to drop a gun he was holding. Before an further discussion, the man shot himself. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At about 12:08 p.m. Saturday, dispatch received a report of shots fired in a home in the 3500 block of Cantura Crest Court.

Double Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Man (Bonita, CA)

BONITA (CNS) – A 45-year-old man suspected of wounding two people at a condominium complex near Sweetwater County Park in Bonita was found dead at the end of a five-and-a-half-hour standoff from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said Saturday.

The gunfire at the condominium complex in the 2900 block of Briarwood Road was reported shortly before 5 p.m. Friday, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department officials.

When deputies arrived, they found a man, suffering from a gunshot wound, in the driveway of the complex and saw another man, armed with a rifle, running toward the condominiums, officials said.

Deputies surrounded the area and evacuated four units immediately surrounding the one where the suspect was believed to have barricaded himself and instructed other residents to shelter in place, according to the sheriff’s department.

A woman, also suffering from a gunshot wound, was found inside one of the four evacuated units and paramedics took both victims to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

A sheriff’s SWAT team was summoned and around 10:30 p.m. a robot sent into the condominium where the suspect was believed to have holed up captured images of the man, inside the living room, with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Princeton, ME)

PRINCETON, Maine — The hunting and fishing camp owner who was wounded by a gunman Tuesday evening is recovering and in good condition, according to a spokesperson at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Maine State Police reported Tuesday that Steve Whitman, 60, was shot that afternoon at the campground but still managed to call 911 and identify his shooter as Craig Woodruff, 52, of Baileyville.

Woodruff was found dead a short distance away inside his sports utility vehicle on the Long Lake Camp Road, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

After an autopsy was conducted Wednesday, Brandy Desrosier of the state Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta reported that Woodruff died of “a gunshot wound to the head with perforation of the brain.”

The gun used was not identified, but she said the death was ruled a suicide.

Police said Tuesday night that the two men knew each other but offered no motive for the shooting. State police Sgt. Darrin Crane said Wednesday that he was unable to provide any more information than what was released Tuesday.

Whitman and his wife, Linda “Lin” Whitman, are the owners and operators of Long Lake Camps, located about 1.5 miles from town. One of Woodruff’s relatives is a manager at the camp, and Woodruff was a guide, according to the camp’s website.

Steve Whitman, 60, reportedly suffered two gunshot wounds around 5 p.m. but still managed to call 911 and give Washington County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers details about the man who shot him, identified as Craig Woodruff, 52, of Baileyville, McCausland stated in an email late Tuesday.

State police spokesman Steve McCausland said in a release that 60-year-old Steve Whitman is expected to survive his injuries from the shooting around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Harold E. McCutcheon Jr (Washington, PA)

Harold E. McCutcheon Jr.

A standoff between police and a man who fatally shot his ex-wife and then himself forced the nighttime evacuation of more than a dozen residents of a normally quiet neighborhood in Washington County.

“It’s absolutely shocking,” said neighbor Lou Haddad, 34, of South Strabane. He said gunfire hit his house twice.

Police said Harold E. McCutcheon Jr., 56, of Claysville entered the home of his ex-wife, Terry L. McCutcheon, 52, on Thursday, just before midnight, and shot her male companion, Richard Carly, 62, of Washington. Carly escaped to a neighbor’s townhouse, police said, and is being treated in Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side.

Harold McCutcheon III said he last spoke to his mother on Sunday and his father about 9 p.m. Thursday. He said nothing in those conversations tipped him off to the violence that unfolded in the townhouse on Arrowhead Drive, not far from Tanger Outlets and The Meadows Racetrack & Casino.

A woman and her husband are dead and a third person is in a hospital after a standoff Friday morning at a townhouse in South Strabane Township, Washington County.
The coroner said Terry McCutcheon, 52, and Harold McCutcheon Jr., 56, were found shot in a bedroom when the Washington Regional SWAT Team entered the home on Arrowhead Drive. The wife’s death was ruled a homicide and the husband’s death was ruled a suicide.

“The victim’s husband had held police at bay during the incident,” said the report from Coroner Tim Warco. “A male friend of the victim’s was also wounded but escaped from the home and was transported to a Pittsburgh hospital.”

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Winchester, KY)

male

The survivor from last week’s shooting on Kittison Drive has been upgraded to fair condition but remains in a Lexington hospital.

Theodore Volkar was shot three times by his wife Patricia around 8:30 p.m. Sept. 26 in their home, Winchester Police said. Patricia Volkar then turned the gun on herself inside the home.

Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said the couple had been in an argument prior to the incident that evening. Detectives spoke with Theodore Volkar in the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center Friday, but have not talked to him since, Hall said.

“He said she had shot him and believed she shot herself,” Hall said. “After she shot him, he went outside” and did not hear the final shot.

When officers arrived on the scene, Theodore Volkar was lying on the front porch with multiple gunshot wounds from a .38 caliber handgun. He was shot once in each arm and once in the abdomen, Hall said.

Patricia Volkar was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said the couple had been in an argument prior to the incident that evening. Detectives spoke with Theodore Volkar in the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center Friday, but have not talked to him since, Hall said.

“He said she had shot him and believed she shot herself,” Hall said. “After she shot him, he went outside” and did not hear the final shot.

When officers arrived on the scene, Theodore Volkar was lying on the front porch with multiple gunshot wounds from a .38 caliber handgun. He was shot once in each arm and once in the abdomen, Hall said.

Patricia Volkar was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Kenneth Lees Sr. (Jefferson, PA)

male

BROCKWAY, Pa. —A state trooper was shot as a warrant was being served at a home in northwestern Pennsylvania, and police said a suspect was found dead early Friday after an all-night police response brought dozens of officers to the crime scene.

State police identified the dead man as Kenneth Lees Sr. and said his adult son, Kenneth Jr., is under arrest while Trooper Brad Wilson remains in critical condition.

Police said the shooting happened Thursday afternoon when troopers went to a house in Brockway, Jefferson County, about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, to serve the warrant with a drug task force.

At a news conference Friday, police said they were trying to search the house because they were looking for a meth lab. They think Lees Sr. shot Wilson through a window and killed himself.

Lees Jr. was caught Thursday night after police issued a “be on the lookout” alert for him. They said he was taken into custody after he tried to run following an approximately 20-mile car chase.

September 27, 2013

DuBois Station – Officer involved shooting that occurred on September 26, 2013 at 1881 Cemetery Hill Road, Snyder Township, Jefferson County.

Incident Number: C04-1138998

Lead Investigator: Corporal Gregory Raybuck

This incident occurred as members of the Pennsylvania State police and the Jefferson County Drug Task Force were serving a search warrant on the occupants of the Kenneth Lees Sr. residence located at 1881 Cemetery Hill Road, near the Borough of Brockway, Snyder Township, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.

Upon approaching the front door of the residence and announcing their identity and possession of a lawful search warrant, the officers were met with gunfire from an occupant of the home. Trooper First Class Bradley Wilson was struck in the neck and upper torso by two bullets fired from the residence and was immediately incapacitated. Troopers and officers on scene then returned fire and successfully extricated the wounded Trooper from the scene.

Trooper Wilson was taken by ambulance to the DuBois Regional Medical Center in DuBois, Pennsylvania and once stabilized; he was transferred by medical helicopter to Altoona Regional Medical Center in Altoona, Pennsylvania for emergency surgery. He was then transported to UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for further treatment. His condition is currently listed as critical.

At the scene, law enforcement established a perimeter around the Lees residence and attempted to make contact with the occupants to negotiate their surrender. All attempts to communicate with the occupants of the home were unsuccessful. At approximately 1 a.m. on September 27, 2013, members of the Pennsylvania State Police Special Emergency Response Team made entry into the Lees residence to discover the sole occupant; Kenneth Lees Sr., deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Pennsylvania State Police were assisted in this incident by the Jefferson County Emergency Management Association, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office, the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the Brockway Borough Police Department, the Brookville Borough Police Department, the Sykesville Borough Police Department, the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, the Brockway Volunteer Fire Department, the DuBois City Volunteer Fire Department, and the Brockway Volunteer Ambulance Service.

Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Brooklyn Center, MN)

female

Authorities on Wednesday released the name of a man who was killed by his son before the younger man killed himself in the family’s Brooklyn Center home. Gilbert R. Avieda, 65, was shot multiple times shortly before 1 a.m. Monday at the home in the 1300 block of 72nd Avenue N., according to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office.

A man shot and killed his father, then fatally shot himself early Monday in their Brooklyn Center home, authorities said.

The shooter’s mother suffered a bullet wound in her arm but was not an intended target during the domestic dispute, which happened about 1 a.m. in the 1300 block of 72nd Av. N., according to police.

The woman, who was no longer married to the father, is recovering, police added.

Other people were in the home at the time of the shooting, according to police.

While the majority of domestic violence homicides involve a man murdering a woman, and domestic incidents in general are commonly between a man and woman, domestic violence can occur in any type of relationship. In Brooklyn Center, Gilbert Ramos Avieda, age 65, was shot and killed by his son Sept. 23 after a domestic dispute. Avieda’s son then turned the gun on himself. Avieda’s ex-wife also suffered a gunshot wound on her arm.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Cody Archuleta (Payson, AZ)

Cody Archuleta

On Saturday, September 21, 2013, DPS Highway Patrol Officer Seth Meeske made a traffic stop on a white passenger car driven by Cody Archuleta just after 10 p.m. on State Route 87 south of Payson.

When Officer Meeske approached the right side of the car, Archuleta shot him three times through the passenger window. One shot went through Officer Meeske’s forearm, another shot hit Officer Meeske in the left leg and the third shot hit the back of Officer Meeske’s vest.

After shooting the officer, Archuleta left him bleeding on the side of the road and fled north on State Route 87. Officer Meeske was able to return to his patrol car and radio for help. Officer Meeske then drove himself to the Payson hospital and walked into the Emergency Room.

DPS Highway Patrol Officer Robert Derango, on his very first day as a solo patrol officer, heard the initial call for help from Officer Meeske and saw Archuleta speed through a red light in downtown Payson. Officer Derango immediately began to pursue Archuleta reaching speeds of up to 100 miles-per-hour.

Officers from the Payson Police Department and a deputy from the Gila County Sheriff’s Office joined the pursuit. After 40 miles, Archuleta drove off the road and into a ditch near milepost 289. Archuleta shot at officers after getting out of his car and officers with the Payson Police Department and the Gila County Sheriff’s Office returned fire.

Archuleta was found with what was believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Officers gave Archuleta first aid and a Department of Public Safety Air Rescue helicopter landed to help. A DPS Officer/Medic pronounced Archuleta deceased at the scene.

Officer Meeske was airlifted to Banner Good Samaritan Hospital where he underwent surgery over night. Officer Meeske is doing well and in good spirits. His family has expressed their sincere thanks to the public for their concerns during this trying time. The family has requested that they have time to recover as a family and should they want to speak, DPS will notify the media.

“Words fail me in describing the incredible bravery and presence of mind exhibited by Officer Seth Meeske during this incident,” said Robert Halliday, Director of DPS. “He is alive today because of his quick thinking after being shot numerous times. The men and women of DPS have a very difficult job and perform it with courage every day. As we have seen too many times, it is dangerous work. My thanks to the Gila County Sheriff’s Department and the Payson Police Department for their assistance in this investigation. I would like to commend the excellent response by DPS Officer Robert Derango who had just completed his law enforcement training. All of us at DPS pray for a speedy recovery for Officer Meeske. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.”

Payson Police Chief Donald Engler said, “This case is a great example of numerous law enforcement agencies working together to resolve a complex, highly dangerous incident while doing their best to protect the public. All law enforcement agencies in Rim Country work together on a daily basis, which enhances their ability to operate as a single law enforcement unit when critical incidents occur. The Payson Police Department is very thankful Officer Meeske is recuperating so well from his injuries.”

Gila County Sheriff Adam Shephard is quoted as saying, “The inter agency cooperation between the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Payson Police Department and the Gila County Sheriff’s Office was very evident in the events that unfolded on Saturday evening. Officers from each agency responded, without hesitation to assist in locating a violent offender who attempted to take the life of Officer Meeske. I would like to thank all of the officers involved and my Deputies who were called out to assist in this event. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Meeske for a rapid recovery and return to duty”

A high speed chase near Payson leads to a shoot-out with law enforcement. A DPS officer was shot several times. He’s in the hospital.

As for the suspect, he was killed.

DPS officials say the officer was making a routine traffic stop, but within moments he came under gunfire. And what most remarkable here — he not only survived, he drove himself to the hospital.

“Just after 10 on Saturday we had an officer shot multiple times and this was two, three miles south of Payson,” said Carrick Cook, DPS spokesman.

DPS officials say the suspect, 22-year-old Cody Archuleta, shot the 39-year-old officer several times during a traffic stop.

As the suspect sped away the wounded officer called dispatch with vehicle information. Then somehow the officer managed to drive himself to the hospital.

A DPS officer on his first day alone on the job was then called to catch the suspect, before being joined by area law enforcement agencies on a windy chase through northern Arizona, DPS says the suspect drove about 100 miles per hour. He was finally stopped 40 miles away from Payson.

“At the end of this pursuit the suspect did drive into a field and exchange gunfire with officers before, we believe, he has a self-inflicted gunshot wound and died.”

DPS officials say the injured officer is in stable condition. No one else was hurt in the gunfight or chase.
