Senior Trooper Steven Vincent succumbed to his injuries yesterday morning after he was shot by a suspect during the course of a traffic incident this past Sunday afternoon. Trooper Vincent is survived by his wife Katherine, 9-year-old son Ethan, his brothers, Louisiana State Police Trooper Terrell Vincent and Town of Iowa Police Chief Keith Vincent, as well as a large extended family.
The Vincent family and Troopers from across the state have been touched by the incredible outpouring of support received from across the nation and across the world. Whereas many local fundraising efforts are being conducted by legitimate organizations, Troopers urge the public to be cautious when making monetary donations to unfamiliar sources. -- LSP press release
