 Lake Charles, LA – Senior Trooper Steven Vincent, the 44 year old Lake Charles area trooper who was shot yesterday during the course of a traffic encounter, died just after 8:00 this morning, according to Superintendent of State Police, Colonel Mike Edmonson. Vincent was surrounded by family and friends when he died. Vincent becomes the first trooper killed in a hostile encounter since the murder of Trooper Donald Cleveland near Lafayette in 1977.

.

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.

.

During his 12 years of service he received thirteen awards and commendations including the department’s Professional Excellence and Meritorious Service Awards as well as numerous Unit Citations for his dedicated and selfless duty throughout the state. He had also served in the United States Army during Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm.

.

“Trooper Vincent epitomizes all that is great about our organization. He didn’t just believe in our core values, he lived them. The citizens of this state were well served by Vincent, and I know they join us in our collective grief,” Edmonson said.

.

In an earlier message announcing Vincent’s passing, Edmonson told members of the department, “we are heartbroken over this senseless and tragic death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his surviving wife, Katherine, and his son, Ethan, as well as his entire extended family. Steven was proud to serve as a Louisiana State Trooper and we were proud to count him among our ranks. This loss exacts an enormous emotional toll on the State Police family, but we will do what is necessary and proper to honor Steven and support those who knew and loved him. He will be missed but never forgotten.”
