SAVE #1724, Officer Justin Conley, Mount Orab Police Department, Mount Orab, OH

On January 3, 2010 Officer Justin Conley of the Mt. Orab Police Department had cleared a DUI arrest by releasing the suspect to his wife and was working on the paperwork for the arrest. He went out to the parking lot of the station to retrieve a power bar from his cruiser and the male from the DUI arrest was waiting in ambush. The assailant shot Officer Conley with a .357 Magnum in the back 1.5” from the bottom edge of his ABA XT2-9 armor. Officer Conley immediately returned fire while moving to cover. Officer Conley’s partner also engaged the actor from inside the station. The running gunfight moved across the parking lot where both Officer Conley and his partner were able to fatally wound the assailant. Officer Conley was treated and released from the hospital that same day.
