    Gilbert, AZ - Lt Shuhandler


    Lieutenant Eric Shuhandler

    Gilbert Police Department
    Arizona

    End of Watch: Thursday, January 28, 2010
    Biographical Info
    Age: 42
    Tour of Duty: 16 years
    Badge Number: 747


    Incident Details
    Cause of Death: Gunfire
    Date of Incident: Thursday, January 28, 2010
    Weapon Used: Gun; Unknown type
    Suspect Info: Shot and wounded


    Lieutenant Eric Shuhandler was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle occupied by two males near the intersection of Val Vista Road and Baseline Road, near the border of Gilbert and Mesa.

    After pulling into the parking lot of a strip mall, he was shot by the passenger who had a warrant outstanding. Lieutenant Shuhandler was fatally wounded in the exchange.

    Two sergeants from the Mesa Police Department heard the shot and found Lieutenant Shuhandler at the same time as Gilbert police received a 911 call reporting the shooting. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his wound.

    The suspects were located minutes later and a 50-mile high-speed chase began along Highway 60, with several units pursuing the pickup through Phoenix-area communities. The suspects fired several rounds and threw objects from their vehicle at the pursuing officers. The vehicle abruptly stopped in the town of Superior, and both suspects were wounded in an exchange of gunfire with officers from four agencies. Both suspects were arrested at the scene.

    Lieutenant Shuhandler had served with the Gilbert Police Department for 16 years. He is survived by his two daughters, sister, and parents.

    Sgt. Mark Marino, a Gilbert police spokesman, described Shuhandler as "a model officer."

    "He was a very aggressive officer. He loved his job," Marino said, fighting back tears over the loss of a close colleague and friend.
