Village Public Safety Officer Thomas Madole was shot and killed in Manokotak, Alaska.

Officer Madole had radioed Alaska State Troopers at approximately 4:00 pm to report that he was going to speak with a subject regarding an earlier altercation the man had been involved in. Approximately one hour later a citizen called the troopers to report a shooting.

Because of the remote location of the village, four troopers had to fly to the location. They discovered Officer Madole's body outside of the subject's home. The man was later taken into custody.

Officer Madole had served as a VPSO in the village for 1-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife, son, and daughter.

The family of officer Madole just bought my brother, a 28 year veteran of the Papillion Nebraska police department, coffee this morning. My brother was very moved by the account of officer Madoles' life . You have moved one the most highly respected men in this community. You have moved the most influential person in my life today. Officer Madole will now have a positive impact on many people in this area. I am very sorry for your loss and thank you for this blessing.
