Norman R. Killough

Trooper Norman Killough was accidentally shot and killed by an officer from another agency during an undercover operation.

Trooper Killough and a second trooper were undercover attempting to build credibility for an illegal fencing operation. The joint operation included officers from the Flint Police Department stopping them to hassle them in a high-crime section of town. During the second such stop one of the officer's revolvers accidentally discharged, striking Trooper Killough in the side. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Norman and I were in recruit school together. He and I had dreams of working close together. I still swell up today with tears when I think of him. Frankie Battle was also close to us. I have my opinion of what happen see in flint.
He was so so funny.
