Trooper First Class Chadwick LeCroy, 38, of Marietta was shot twice in the face by a suspect he had tried to pull over, the GSP said. Atlanta and Cobb County police arrested the suspect shortly after the shooting.
He was the first trooper to be killed by gunfire since 1975, and the 27th trooper killed in the line of duty since the GSP was organized in 1937.
Prayers to his family.

Edit:
Keenan, whose agency is the lead in the case, said an autopsy showed LeCroy was hit only once, and not twice as was previously believed.

Re: State Trooper Dead After Suspect Shoots Him in the Face

I heard about this around twenty minutes after it happened. We were hanging out at WH and radio-medic was listening in on radio chatter. At that time, it was only trooper shot, in transit, GSP unit taken by suspect. My heart sank then, and I feel worse after hearing that he died on the way to Grady. Thoughts and prayers will be with his family.

I hope justice is swift and harsh for the criminal.
This guy has not a friend left in the world. My guess is he's caught before the end of the day.

Damn. I saw this on channel 2 last night as the story was breaking. At the time, there were no details on the trooper's condition.... Not the outcome I was hoping for.

The sad part is some DA will probably give him life in prison where the scum bags will consider him a hero for killing a cop. This guy should be tried and fried ASAFP. :evil:

A truly sad story. Every year the Christmas holidays will be a sad time for the family. My heart goes out to them and his fellow troopers.

I heard on GPR this morning that death penalties are on a sharp decline nation wide... why....$$$. Death penalty convictions cost up to $3 mill, life is 50% cheaper $1 mill. Unreal!

I don't think so.
he will get food, and housing 3 times a day and medical care
Don't forget access to just about any books he wants. It's amazing how many criminals know more about the laws affecting their case than the attorneys that represented them by the time they get out.

He better be. I don't want someone like that let off on a technicality because some guy decided to take justice into his own hands and tune the suspect up while in custody. Such behavior does noone ANY good.
