Retired CA Officer

Retired CA Officer Killed Guarding News Crew at Smash and Grab Robbery Kevin Nishita, who retired in 2018 after serving with the Hayward, San Jose, and Colma police department, was shot in the abdomen during an attempted robbery of KRON-TV’s camera equipment near downtown Oakland, police said. “He was rushed to a local hospital for medical attention and, despite the hospital staff’s best efforts, succumbed to his injuries (Saturday) morning,” the City of Colma said in a statement. The KRON crew was covering a recent robbery where a group of thieves broke in and stole from a clothing store, the Associated Press reports. A reward of ,500 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in Nishita’s killing. NC Trooper Receives Congressional Badge of Bravery A North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper who was seriously wounded during a 2019 shooting received the Congressional Badge of Bravery Monday. Trooper Daniel Harrell was shot in the face and neck. A suspect rammed his patrol car. Still, he continued pursuit until backup could arrive and make an arrest, WRAL reports. “He stopped. I stopped behind him,” Harrell told the North Carolina Department of Transportation in 2019. “Just as I was about to get out of my car, he leaned out the window and fired approximately four times, striking me in the corner of the lip and just above my eye.” Congressman G.K. Butterfield and Sen. Thom Tillis were on hand. State troopers lined the auditorium at Wilson Community College. John David Jones, the driver of the car Harrell tried to pull over, is serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison, convicted of unlawful possession of ammunition. Two other men were charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle in connection with the crime. The initial stop was for illegal towing. 34 The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE 35
