Police Recruit Kelley Chase died after suffering a head injury during a defensive tactics test at the Oklahoma City Police Training Center.

He was completing the six-minute long final test with an instructor when he was thrown to the ground and struck the back of his head on a mat. He remained conscious but was unable to stand up again after striking his head. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to internal head injuries the following day.

Police Recruit Chase was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had been sworn in as a police officer only four months earlier at the beginning of his academy session. He is survived by his wife and two children.
