I was the Minneapolis Police Officer that initiated the vehicle chase, and when the suspect crashed his vehicle and fled on foot I left my squad and chased him on foot. One of the most important obligations any police office has is to come to the aide of an officer in peril, and in fulfilling that obligation Mark followed me in the foot pursuit when he was tragically struck by another vehicle. My thanks to you for fulfilling that obligation, and my condolences to all who knew and loved you.
