Another violent law enforcement death

I pray this is the last violent law enforcement death I post this year!  I have made this statement in the past.  “Twenty years ago people would fight with the police to get away.  Now, they fight with the police to kill us.”  This is an example of such an incident.  After being shot Corporal Ballard ran from the suspect to get cover.  The suspect chased him and shot him numerous times instead of continuing to run away.  This man was only 32 years old and had a wife and young daughter.  Makes me want to cry….

My condolences and prayers to Corporal Ballard’s family and the Delaware law enforcement family.

Ballard, Stephen, J, 042617

Corporal Stephen Ballard was shot and killed while investigating a suspicious vehicle at a gas station on Pulaski Highway, near Salem Church Road, in Bear, Delaware.

He made contact with two people he observed in the vehicle, at which point one of the men began struggling with him. The man pushed Corporal Ballard away from him and began to run. After taking several steps he turned around and opened fire on Corporal Ballard, wounding him. The man then chased Corporal Ballard as he sought cover behind a vehicle. The man shot him numerous times, including several times after Corporal Ballard fell to the ground.

Responding officers apprehended one of the subjects at the scene. The second subject fled to his home where he barricaded himself inside. After a long standoff, the subject exited his home and opened fire on officers, who returned fire killing him.

Corporal Ballard had served with the Delaware State Police for 8-1/2 years and was assigned to Troop 2, Glasgow. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
