Michigan Officer Killed by Suicidal Suspect

April 19, 2011  | 


A Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officer responding to a shots-fired call was shot and killed when he confronted a fleeing suspect between two houses.

Officer Eric Zapata, 35, is a 10-year law enforcement veteran with three children. He's the first officer with this department killed in the line of duty.

Officer Zapata was killed Monday evening, when he and a second officer responded to a shots fired call in the 1400 block of Hays Park Avenue. The second officer came into contact with Leonard Statler, the 31-year-old owner of the home, and asked the man if he has heard shots.
