ELKHART, Ind. - The city of Elkhart plans to honor two police officers and a dispatcher for their roles in ending a January supermarket attack by a gunman who killed two people.
Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore plans to give plaques Sunday to Officers Cody Skipper and Jason Tripp and dispatcher Justin Yoder.
Tripp and Skipper were the first officers on the scene of the shootings and confronted Shawn Bair, 22, as he threatened to shoot a store manager.
A coroner was unable to determine whether Bair died from a gunshot to his heart by police or a self-inflicted head wound because they occurred nearly simultaneously.
Moore said the plaques are from the people of Elkhart, saying the three deserve to be recognized for their service. The General Assembly previously honored Skipper and Tripp.
Martin's Super Market employee Krystle Dikes and shopper Rachelle Godfread were killed in the shooting. Police said Bair didn't know either woman.
Investigators aren't sure why Bair chose that store or what motivated him.
