Shawn Steven Schneider

Police Officer Shawn Schneider succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained 11 days earlier after responding to a domestic disturbance call on West Lyon Avenue at approximately 8:30 am.

After Officer Schneider and his partner arrived at the scene, the male subject was spotted outside of the home by Officer Schneider's partner, but then retreated back inside. He opened fire on Officer Schneider through a basement window, fatally wounding him.

Officer Schneider was transported to a local hospital where he remained until succumbing to his wounds.

Officer Schneider had served with the 10-officer Lake City Police Department for eight years. He also served part-time with the Wabasha County Sheriff's Office and had previously served with the Plainview Police Department. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

While recently vacationing in Lake City, MN. We were blessed to have stayed in a home with a perfect view of Police Officer Shawn Steven Schneider’s Memorial.
We watched daily as children with curiosity and folks alike stopped to pay tribute...and some like myself that googled to read Shawn’s story. Hopefully Officer Shawn Steven Schneider’s family know that though Shawn’s EOW was 12/30/2011, Shawn continues to watch over his wonderful Lake City, Mn community along the beautiful banks of Lake Pepin
