R.I.P : Trooper Kevin Conner,

Trooper Conner was an 11-year veteran, assigned to Troop B. District 5 in Columbus County, North Carolina

In 2011, he was hailed a hero when he extinguished a car fire while also tending to a driver involved in a head-on collision.

"North Carolina trooper killed during traffic stop,

It was a violent few hours for officers in two states as one in North Carolina was killed during a traffic stop and another in Tennessee was badly wounded while searching for a suspect at an apartment complex.

Trooper Kevin Conner was fatally shot around 12:15 a.m. ET Wednesday in Columbus County when he stopped a pickup truck for speeding, according to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

Conner was approaching the vehicle, which had pulled over on the shoulder of the road, when the driver opened fire, striking the trooper.

Conner was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.

Baker said the suspect drove away after shooting Conner which led to a brief chase with local police. The pickup became disabled at a railroad crossing and the driver fled on foot.

After an extensive search, authorities located the suspect in a wooded area in Fair Bluff and took him into custody around 4 a.m. ET. Charges are pending, Baker said."
