Kevin Michael Marshall

Trooper Kevin Marshall was shot and killed during an ERT operation at a barricade situation in Fremont involving a militia member.

The standoff began the previous day when officers attempted to serve a solicitation of prostitution warrant on a male. The suspect indicated he had a gun and held officers at bay. The Michigan State Police Emergency Response Unit was called to assist at the scene and attempted an entry after deploying tear gas inside the home. As the team entered, the suspect opened fire, grazing one officer and striking Trooper Marshall four times. One of the rounds penetrated his bulletproof vest, and one of the others struck him just below the vest.

Although the house was surrounded by dozens of law enforcement officers, the suspect was able to escape undetected after the shooting. A cache of weapons and survival gear was found in the rubble of his house, which caught fire and burned during the raid. The suspect was shot and killed one week later after police received information on his whereabouts. The Michigan State Police Emergency Response Team arrived at the scene and located the suspect in a vehicle. They ordered the man to stay inside the car, but he exited with a semi-automatic rifle. He was shot and killed when he pointed the rifle at the officers.

Trooper Marshall had served with the Michigan State Police for eight years and was assigned to the Newaygo Post. He is survived by his wife, two children, parents, and sister.

Kevin, thank you for watching over all of us! We miss you every day. You are with us on every call.
I attended the 9th basic school graduation with my son in 2006, he was 3 at that time. We went to the Fallen Trooper Memorial and paid our respects to you and many others.
We were sitting on the bench reflecting and he asked me “What is this place dad?” I told him “This is where all of our hero’s are at.“ He looked around for a minute and then said “Are you here dad ?” Not wanting to go into great detail and with many more years to go in the MSP I told him,
“No, not yet”
Rest easy Brother!
