Today tragedy struck in Nevada. Nevada Highway Patrol Sergeant Ben Jenkins was patrolling US-93 in the White Pine County area when Jenkins stopped to assisted a motorist. The motorist unexpectedly shot and killed Jenkins during the contact.
The motorist then stole the Sergeant’s uniform and fled scene in the NHP patrol vehicle. Multiple agencies searched for hours before finding the murder suspect, when he was taken into custody.
Jenkins is a 12 year veteran of the Nevada Highway Patrol. He served time in the Air National Guard and Army National Guard. Jenkins was also a recipient of a Gold Medal of Valor for extraordinary heroism in law enforcement.
Our deepest condolences go out to his family, his peers, and the community he selflessly served.
May he rest in peace. May his loved ones find justice.
