Arvada Police officer killed: What happened? Suspect Revealed

Dillon Michael Vakoff has been identified as the Arvada Police Officer who was slain early on Sunday while responding to a family disturbance. Let’s see how Arvada Police officer killed and what happened to him in detail

At a press conference on Sunday early in the morning, Arvada Police Chief Link Strate said, “Dillon is an example of everything good about a police officer.” When Vakoff, 27, and another officer arrived at the disturbance in the 6700 block of West 51st Avenue at around 1:45 a.m., Vakoff was fatally shot, according to police. That’s close to Inspiration Point Park and is situated where the avenue intersects with Marshall Street.

When the police arrived, they saw a crowded street and a chaotic situation. The suspect fired rounds that struck a female victim while the officers attempted to separate several “belligerent and reluctant” persons, according to Strate. The suspect and the officers engaged in gunfire.

According to Strate, the suspect shot Vakoff and was himself shot. Vakoff received assistance from a second unnamed Arvada Police officer before being taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to Strate.

The unidentified suspect was brought to a hospital. He was being held by the police and was expected to survive.The victim who was a woman was also taken to a hospital and was anticipated to make it. Other policemen weren’t hurt either. Vakoff joined the Arvada Police Department in 2019 and, according to Strate, was pursuing his SWAT officer training at the time. He had previously served as a staff sergeant in the US. He served for six years in the Air Force.

He was an Arvada resident and a 2012 Ralston Valley High School alumnus. According to Strate, “This is a devastating loss for this city, for this department, but most importantly for his family and loved ones.” His contributions and sacrifice will always be remembered. Police stated that the inquiry was underway.
