He was speaking to the man, who had been riding a bicycle, and called for backup. As he continued to speak with the subject the man suddenly fled on foot and then opened fire, striking Officer Thalmann in the face and a second officer in the leg.

Today my sweet Alex, the Washington, NC Police Department dedicated a swing in your name on the Washington waterfront.

All donations for the swing came from Police Officers. Chief Toussant Summers of New Bern and Chief Stacy Langford of Washington as well as the Mayor, the City Manager, Washington PD members, Beaufort County Sheriffs, New Bern PD members and other 1st responders were there.

They put the swing in one of your favorite spots.

I am so proud you impacted so many lives in your brief life. You were admired by so many and remembered as an endearing, honest, dedicated human being and friend.

I love you baby. Miss you just as much. Love Mom
