Jeremy T. Charron

Patrolman Jeremy Charron was shot and killed while checking on a car which contained two sleeping men. While talking with one of the men the individual pulled out a gun, cursed at the officer, and shot him. Patrolman Charron returned fire until he collapsed, but none of the shots hit the suspect, though each hit the getaway vehicle. Both suspects escaped and drove north where they attempted to rob a convenience store. Officers arrived at the scene during the robbery and arrested the suspects following a brief shootout.

It is thought that the suspect believed that Patrolman Charron would learn that there was a warrant out for his arrest or that he would discover the suspect, who was a convicted felon, was in possession of a firearm. The suspect in Patrolman Charron's death plead guilty of capital murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Patrolman Charron had just returned from the funeral of Trooper Leslie Lord and Trooper Scott Phillips, of the New Hampshire State Police, before his shift started. He had only recently graduated from the police academy.

Patrolman Charron was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. American Legion Law Enforcement Post 122 was created in memory of Patrolman Charron.

I just saw that one of the two defendants responsible for your horrific murder just walked away from the "Sober House" he was paroled to and walked away from his parole, AGAIN, as this is the second time he has walked away from his parole. I can't even begin to put into words how not only infuriating this is but how confusing it is too. It absolutely baffles me how all we here today are erroneous and false narrative complaints from media and politicians about a broken justice system. Citing of course the described "injustices" involving LE doing nothing more but carrying out the dangerous day to day duties and job performances, yet when the most egregious injustice like this occurs we here nothing or very little. Heaven Forbid there should be any further victims as a result of this absurdity, and I pray for swift and safe action to get this monster back in custody where he belongs. God Bless you Officer Charron and all of your brother and sister officers up there and of course, your family. RIP and keep watch over your brethren LE from above my friend and THANK YOU for your service!!
