On October 29, 2015 officers from the Hohenwald Police Department and deputies from the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of an aggravated burglary where the suspect stole guns, money and medication after stabbing a man in the stomach. As the officers approached the suspect, the assailant immediately opened fire with a .380 – striking two of the officers.
Deputy Robin Hooks was hit twice off the armor and Officer Allan Carroll was hit in the chest. Officers returned fire and fatally wounded the assailant.
Deputy Hooks is recovering from this incident. Officer Carroll was treated and released with no injuries thanks to his Second Chance® MR01 Level IIIA armor.
We welcome Officer Allan Carroll, SAVE #1932, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
