Police Officer Scott Patrick was shot and killed while making a traffic stop near the intersection of Dodd Road and Smith Avenue, in West St. Paul, at 12:20 pm.

Officer Patrick was standing next to his patrol car's door when the subject fired multiple shots, striking him in the head. He was transported to Regions Hospital where he succumbed to the wound.

The subject, who was identified as a fugitive, opened fire on officers who located him in St. Paul approximately seven hours later. He was shot and wounded by the officers before being taken into custody. In February 2015 he was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life without parole.

Officer Patrick had served with the Mendota Heights Police Department for 19 years. He is survived by his wife and two teenage daughters.

Prayers from Houston, TX. I just rode the Texas Wheels of Justice Bike ride with Scott's name on my wrist band. My Son-in-Law is a PO and his father and I rode this ride together.

The Wheels of Justice ride generates funds for the Police Unity Tour
that raises awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty. http://policeunitytour.com/

Please know you have one more out here praying for Scott's soul and your family's well being and comfort.

God Bless,

Citizen Ryan Colburn
