On June 17, 2013 Trooper Jarrod Lents of the Indiana State Police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Black Oaks Armaments Gun Shop in Montgomery, Indiana. Upon his arrival, Trooper Lents was shot multiple times by the suspect who was armed with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun. Although he was hit four times – once in the chest, side, back and forearm which also hit his vest – Trooper Lents was able to draw his duty weapon and return fire, fatally wounding his assailant. Trooper Lents was airlifted to Deaconess in Evansville where it was found that all four rounds were stopped by his Second Chance® SummitTM Level II SM01 armor. Trooper Lents was treated for the gunshot to his forearm and released later that evening.
We welcome Trooper Jarrod Lents, SAVE #1856, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
