Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Kevin Daigle :: Caucasian / Male - 54 years old
   Pic 1    
Location: Highway 14 and Fruge Road   Bell, LA   USA   Sun. Aug. 23, 2015
Summary: Senior Trooper Steven Vincent was shot and killed while checking on a vehicle that was being operated by a suspected intoxicated driver near the intersection of Highway 14 and Fruge Road, near Bell City.

Trooper Vincent was on patrol when he spotted a vehicle from a previous reckless driving report. The vehicle in question had driven off the road and was stuck in a ditch. Trooper Vincent approached the vehicle and began speaking with the occupant and then ordered him to exit the vehicle. The male exited the vehicle with a sawed off shotgun in his hand and opened fire, striking Trooper Vincent in the head. The man then taunted Trooper Vincent as he lay on the ground mortally wounded.

A passing motorist witnessed the incident, stopped his vehicle and tackled the subject. He then wrestled the shotgun away from the man while additional civilians who stopped to assist utilized Trooper Vincent's handcuffs to cuff and take the subject into custody. They then called for assistance and rendered aid to Trooper Vincent.

Trooper Vincent was taken to Lake Charles Hospital where he died the next day from his wounds.

Disposition: Daigle, whose criminal history includes numerous DWIs, will be charged with first-degree murder of a police officer and aggravated battery.
