Reserve Deputy Mike Wilken succumbed to injuries sustained the previous night when he was struck by a vehicle at the intersection of White Bear and Frost Avenues. He was directing traffic at the sheriff's office's annual haunted house festivities, which raised money for the D.A.R.E. program.

The officer had just spoken to a driver and was walking on a crosswalk when he was struck by a vehicle. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the following morning.

Deputy Wilken had volunteered as a reserve deputy for 10 years and also served as a civilian employee of the St. Paul Police Department. He is survived by his wife, two children, and three siblings.
