Scott Patrick
Officer Scott Patrick, age 47, died in the line of duty on July 30, 2014, in a hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Scott was a member of the Mendota Heights Police Department. He had 19 years of service.

Just after noon, Scott was conducting a traffic stop in West St. Paul. As he approached the subject's car, the subject opened fire, shooting Scott in the head.  The subject then sped away. 

Brian Fitch
Scott was transported to a local hospital where sadly he succumbed to his wounds.

The suspect, Brian Fitch, age 39, was located eight hours later in St. Paul.  When officers approached him, he opened fire and was wounded by officers before being taken into custody. A woman passenger in his car was also wounded during the arrest.

Brian Fitch is described as a career criminal with convictions for burglary, felony theft, assault, making threats, illegal possession of a firearm, false imprisonment, etc.  This dude has a rap sheet like Judas. 

Scott began his career in law enforcement with the Shakopee Police Department in 1992 and then joined the Mendota Heights Department in 1995.  During his career he worked as a day shift patrol officer.

Scott was the most senior officer in the Mendota Heights Police Department.

The Mendota Heights Police Department is in mourning over the death of their brother. Police officials describe Scott as a family man. He loved his wife and kids. He will be forever remembered.
Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray
for Scott and for those who
have lost him

Friends describe Scott as a man who often went above and beyond the call of duty to help those in the community. 

Scott's loved ones are devastated over his senseless and tragic death. He will be forever mourned.

Scott is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife and his two daughters.

Thank you for your service to the public, Scott.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

God save us from the Lost Ones and the Psychopaths who bring death to strangers. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Scott is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
