Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   Webster, NY   USA   Mon. Dec. 24, 2012
Summary: Lieutenant Michael Chiapperini was shot and killed while responding to a house fire at a home on Lake Road in Webster.

Lieutenant Chiapperini had responded to the fire as as a volunteer firefighter and was on the first piece of apparatus to arrive at the scene. As he and the other volunteer firefighters exited the pumper truck to start fighting the fire, a subject opened fire on them from an ambush position. Lieutenant Chiapperini immediately assessed the situation and began providing tactical direction to the other firefighters to take cover. He then maneuvered through the fire truck's cab and began moving on foot towards the shooter's location as the other responders took cover.

As he made his way towards the subject he was shot in the head and fatally wounded.

The subject held other responding officers at bay for several hours until finally committing suicide.

Volunteer Firefighter Tomasz Kaczowka was also shot and killed by the subject.
