PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...



Trooper Paul Butterfield
Michigan State Police

Michigan
End of Watch: Monday, September 9, 2013


MILITARY VETERAN




Age: 43
Tour of Duty: 14 Years
Badge Number: 1190


Cause: Gunfiree
Incident Date: Monday, September 9, 2013
Weapon: Gun, Unknown Type
Suspects: Shot and Wounded


Trooper Paul Butterfield was shot and killed while making a traffic stop on Custer Road, near Townline Road, in Mason County, at approximately 6:20 pm.


A few minutes after radioing in the stop a citizen called 911 to report a trooper had been shot. Responding units located Trooper Butterfield on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was flown to Munson Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds while in surgery.


Using a vehicle description provided by Trooper Butterfield as he stopped the vehicle, investigators were able to identify a suspect and located him, along with a female accomplice, at a convenience store in a neighboring county approximately two hours later. Officers exchanged gunfire with him as they made contact, wounding the male subject before taking them both into custody.


Trooper Butterfield was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Michigan State Police for 14 years.


He is survived by his mother and father, who is retired Michigan State Police,  fiancee', and his beloved pets.
