Gilbert, AZ - Lt Shuhandler
Lieutenant Eric Shuhandler
Gilbert Police Department
End of Watch: Thursday, January 28, 2010
Tour of Duty: 16 years
Badge Number: 747
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.

RIP :sad:'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

Before joining that department, he earned his bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Southern Vermont College.
He worked for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office for two years as a detention officer and two more years as a deputy before joining the Gilbert force in August 1994.
He became a sergeant in 2003 and was promoted to lieutenant three years later.
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.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
