    Colonial Heights Officer EOW...


    17-year Colonial Heights police veteran was killed in a traffic accident during a police chase that began in Chesterfield County.

    Lt. James H. Sears, 38, was killed early Saturday morning in Colonial Heights, apparently as one police car swerved to avoid another vehicle.

    Colonial Heights Police officials said in a prepared statement that Sears commanded a night-shift patrol division, but was off duty at the time of his death.

    Chesterfield police issued a statement after 11 a.m. saying authorities were looking for a 36-year-old Barboursville man in connection with the police chase. The man was identified as Douglas Michael Brown Jr., who is wanted for eluding police and being a habitual offender. Brown is also wanted by Charlottesville authorities for an unidentified felony, but should be considered armed and dangerous, according to Chesterfield police.

    Brown sports several tattoos, including skulls on his knuckles and skeleton fingers on his left upper arm.

    Sears is survived by his wife and three children.

    As a side note, the officer that was killed was on his way home from the gym. He was not involved in the pursuit as I have heard thus far. Lt. Sears was involved in an accident with Chesterfield County Police Officer. He is at VCU with life threatening injuries.His name has not been released.
