“Our community almost lost an officer yesterday,” Police Chief Lisa Myers said in a news release. “If not for the protection of the armored vehicle, this event would have ended very differently. After taking fire, these officers were able to resolve this very dangerous situation without injury, thanks to their outstanding training and judgement, as well as the critical equipment that saved their lives.”

Police said officers found multiple guns that Tomanek was prohibited from having as well as evidence linking him to the April burglary in which $25,000 worth of items were taken.
