VETERAN OFFICERS HONORED FOR RESPONSE TO MURDER

Two veteran Aurora Police officers are sharing Employee of the Month honors for their actions that led to the quick arrests of two murder suspects.

Officer John Stull and Sergeant Brian Pierce were among dozens of officers who responded to a shooting at around 1 p.m. February 27 in the 100 block of Bluff Street. Sergeant Pierce immediately began an outer perimeter search for any suspects and when critical information was relayed over the radio, he went to the last known area in which they were spotted. When he arrived, he saw two subjects fitting the description of the offenders the officers were looking for off in the distance and he relayed that information to the other officers. Officer Stull immediately located the pair and ordered them to stop. While one of the suspects did, the other ran down an alley. Sergeant Pierce responded to a point in advance of the suspect’s path, headed him off, and took him into custody.
