In Memoriam: Officer Jason Moszer

Chief David Todd of the Fargo Police Department in North Dakota sadly reports the death of Officer Jason Moszer.

Officer Moszer, 33, responded to the scene of a domestic violence situation and stand-off by an armed suspect. Officer Moszer had parked his patrol unit near the home of the incident to maintain a perimeter and was standing outside his patrol unit when the suspect commenced firing a rifle randomly at officers and agency vehicles.

Officer Moszer was struck several times by the suspect’s gunfire as was his patrol unit. Members of the SWAT team transported Officer Moszer to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his gunshot wounds.

The suspect in the shooting was found deceased inside the home following an eleven hour standoff. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Cass County Sheriff Department are conducting the investigation into the shooting and murder of Officer Moszer.

Officer Moszer is the second officer to be killed in the line of duty in the entire history of the agency.

Officer Moszer was a six year veteran of the Fargo Police Department. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Officer Jason Moszer-gone, but never forgotten. EOW: Thursday, February 11, 2016.
