Police Officer Alexander Thalmann succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained three days earlier while conducting a subject stop near the intersection of Oak Street and Elm Street at approximately 11:45 pm.

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. Other officers were able to return fire and killed the subject.

Both officers were transported to a local hospital, where Officer Thalmann remained until passing away on March 31st, 2014.

Officer Thalmann was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. He had only served with the New Bern Police Department for seven months.

Hey man, all is good here. Work is work lol. I wish you were here to go after me and Nick in arrests. You were always a hard worker. A group of us went to the ceremony in DC. Your name is now on the wall and it was a very emotional yet humbling experience. I've started a tattoo sleeve in your memory and it's coming together. Continue watching over us like I know you do. Until we meet again buddy.
