With sadness we announce a fallen officer. Yesterday in Grand Forks (ND), two Deputies came under gunfire while serving a move-out order on a male and female. One Deputy was shot in the upper leg and abdomen. The Deputies called for immediate help.
Officer Cody Holte of the Grand Forks Police Department and his partner were first to arrive on scene to assist the pinned down Deputies. An exchange of gunfire erupted between the officers and the male gunman. The gunman was hit multiple times in the exchange. He received first aid and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Similarly, the wounded Deputy was treated on scene and taken to a nearby hospital. The female subject, and Cody Holte were killed in the firefight.
Cody was 29 years old. He leaves behind his wife and 10-month old son. Cody also is a member of the North Dakota National Guard. Our hearts go out to his loved ones, comrades, and community.
RIP Officer Holte.

And yet another senseless tragedy. This is so wrong!! Rest in peace with the Lord Officer Cody Holte. Prayers of comfort and peace for your family and friends. 🇺🇸💙🙏
This is so tragic. Perhaps if we put prayer back in the schools people would start to see the dignity of each human life. My heart aches for his wife who will never hug her husband again and for the baby boy who will never get to be carried in his daddy’s arms again. Lord please send your Angels and Saints to comfort and watch over Cody’s grieving family. 🕊💙🙏🏼💙🕊
He lost his life for serving a move out order for the tenants to leave the home. Very heartbreaking to hear this, uncalled for for the evil that was done on this officer. Prayers to his family.
May his family find healing over the years. Years, because this is a huge and senseless loss.

And Now A Officer In Ogden Utah Was Shot And Killed Today !! Prayers For All Their Families And God Bless !!!
I search for why, for cause, for decisions, for morality, for leadership. Those that uphold the law, we expect them to do that. But those who blatantly kill in order to somehow change the inevitable, cannot be allowed. If we can’t change behavior, we need to change something!!
All we ever hear about are stories about bad cops by the media, but they seem to never or rarely report stories like this one. Brave souls who serve their respective communities and make the ultimate sacrifice. So sorry about this young man and his little child.
Here in California my heart felt condolences to the young officer family and Department. RIP Cody thank you for you sacrifice, gone too soon.
OMG! So tragic. My prayers to Officer Holts family and fellow officers.
Two young officers in one day, we lost one in Utah also, this needs to stop.
Things will only get worst and being a LEO will only become harder because the scale seems to tip in favor of criminals….but I’m preaching to the choir.
Over a Move out Order? what a shame..Rip officer Holte
My Son is the same age and shares the same occupation. My heart breaks !!
God rest our brother officer Cody's soul and provide strength for his family and his family of blue .
RIP Officer Holte. We pray for peace and healing for your family.
So sorry for the loss of this young hero. Blessings to his young family. 🙏🏻
We lose so many officers in this manner yet there’s never looting and destruction…
Shooting Suspect Arrested After Standoff
Press Release from the Lincoln Police Department:
“At about 11:00 AM on May 27th, Lincoln Police Officers responded to a residence in the 2100 block of Conejo Drive to check on the welfare of male subject. Officers contacted him, determined that no crime had occurred and that no one else was in the residence with him, so they left.
At about 3:00 PM the Lincoln Police Department received multiple calls of “shots fired” in the 2100 block of Conejo Drive. As Officers exited their vehicles they heard shots being fired from the direction of the residence they had previously visited. Additional resources were requested from surrounding agencies, to include Placer County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) Special Enforcement Team (SWAT) and critical incident negotiators. PCSO also dispatched patrol officers, K9 unites, and Detectives. Officers from the Rocklin Police Department assisted as did investigators from the Placer County District Attorney’s Office.
As a perimeter was being established, two gunshot victims were located within a few houses of the suspect’s residence. Their wounds did not appear to be life-threatening and they were transported to local hospitals for treatment.
A perimeter was established around the block and the neighborhood was evacuated for the safety of the residents. The suspect was identified as 28-year-old Christopher William Douglass and an arrest warrant was obtained for two counts of attempted murder. After several hours the negotiators were able to convince him to exit the residence. He was combative while being taken into custody and was bitten by a police K9. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his wounds and will be booked at the South Placer Jail.”
Well done by everyone, especially K9 Drago who was instrumental in the final apprehension of the suspect. 🐺
The Placer DSA delivered four cases of water to the Officers and Deputies due to the extreme heat. It was 104 degrees out! 🥵
The residents of Lincoln and surrounding Placer County area can rest easier knowing a dangerous criminal is off the streets. 👮🏻♂️👍🏼 … See MoreSee Less
I know I speak for our entire department and our community when I extend a huge "thank you" to everyone who had a role in this incident. We pulled the big red handle and you sent us your best. Thanks again!
Well done Placer County Law Enforcement Agencies, the best of the best!
Awesome job Officer K9 Drago, you're a hero!!! And all the officers involved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service and sacrifice ♡♡♡ Please stay safe as we can't replace you♡♡♡ We need you♡♡♡
Great job by all involved. Drago is a good boy. He deserves an extra treat. 💙🐾💙
Great job K9 officer Drago and the rest of his team.
Great team! Officer Drago and partners did a great job! Law enforcement keeps our communities safe! 🙏🙏🇺🇸
Great job everyone. Thank you all for your service. Every time I hear how brave Officer Drago is, my heart goes pitter pat. 💕
Thank you all for a job well done.
Sadly, he will probably be let out of jail with no bail, and never be heard from again..until his next attempted, or possible murder charge.
Our justice system is now just a cash pit, with a revolving door.
Who does that effect? Everyone, especially LEOS.
Who does it not effect? The elite government officials who allowed and voted for these new laws, tied the hands of judges, and put LEOS at risk.
great job all you LEOs, including K-9 Drago. So you finally got to bite somebody. Congratulations to all of you. HOpe you all have a good day today, and be safe.
Well done..and so relieved no officers harmed….thanks you for the updated..stay safe 💙🐾🚓
Thank you for keeping us all safe and thank you Drago! Stay safe out there! 💙🐶
Good job to all LE agencies and K9 Officer Drago. Hopefully the suspect will not be allowed bail or released on OR.
Way to go Drago your awesome and so are your handler. Thankful no officer's were hurt.
Drago for the win! Well done everyone. Now let's keep him in jail rather than allow him to hop on the Newsom train for repeat offenders.
Good job Drago, glad everything worked out safely for all officers involved.
Great team work! Thank you for all you do! Stay safe
K9 Officer Drago…. You are a fURRY SUPERHERO.. keeping the not so furry Officers safer…. because of you… LOVE
We need many more K9's. Every officer should have a K9.
Congratulations for a successful ending to a dangerous situation. Way to earn an extra treat and play time, Drago!
God Bless America and the Placer County LEOs!! American Pride keeps us strong in the eyes of those who threaten our peace. It was beastly hot day too. Love Lee Greenwood's patriotic song too. It amazes me how K9s are taught when to turn on and off attack to bite mold. K9 intelligence above other dogs very impressive
Good dog doing a good job. Well done Drago!
I especially thank all those LEOs💙 involved and K9 Drago!!🐾 This was personally concerning. My daughter lives very near and her whole family were very scared when they heard the shots they knew were very close gun fire! My daughter text me scared! The helicopter surrounding very close she thought this person must be running the streets looking to hide. I told her Placer County has been requested to assist with dedicated excellent officers that will get to this person. I've followed Placer County posting long time now. They are like calling in armor car of LE's thought to be esp.great! Told her K9 will be sent to find him surely. When over told her take my scared 7yr old granddaughter into their pool for night swim to take her mind off the fear, thoughts, of bad man and to relax for sleep. BIG THANK YOU TO ALL LEOS INVOLVED!!💙
Will he be out on no bail?
Everyone is saying good job but this sounds preventable? Someone called in a welfare check for a reason. This person was unstable and you just left because a crime hadn’t been committed yet? Sounds off🤷🏻♀️🤨🧐
Will they keep him in jail? Does zero bail apply to this case? Attempted murder, resisting arrest etc..

Around 11am this morning, a 37 year old man exited his vehicle on Centennial Bridge and began shooting at other vehicles. The man was armed with a handgun and semi automatic rifle. He was able to strike two vehicles with gunfire, and injure a soldier stationed at nearby Fort Leavenworth.
Another soldier on site took aggressive action and used his vehicle as a weapon to confront the gunman. The soldier struck the gunman with his vehicle with intention to neutralize the threat. He was successful.
The gunman and injured soldier were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
We applaud the soldier who took action to save many lives. Job well done! He is a HERO 🇺🇸
It's heroes like the 'action soldier' that this country depends on. THANK YOU to ALL who serve in our Military.
Thank you for your service and protecting others. God bless you and keep you safe. ❤️🙏🏼💙🇺🇸
His insurance may not cover the damage as "an intentional act." If that occurs I hope there's a gofundme or similar action taken so we can help.
Praying he is ok and recovers quickly. Thankful he saved lives and the shooter will get help and be brought to justice
Soldier, American hero on and off duty. Great job
Great job to the soldier for his quick thinking! 🇺🇸
Thank you to the soldier for his quick thinking in this situation. He probably saved many lives with his actions that day. Too bad the shooter has non life threatening injuries,though. I wouldn’t feel too bad for him if he was worse. 😡
Isnt this 2 active shooters on 2 military bases in the last 2 days ?? That's not sounding too good.
Thankful he acted so swiftly 😇 he probably saved a lot of people. Thank you all for keeping us safe 🥰
there's more than one way to stop the bad guys. Sounds like the vehicle worked out pretty darn good. Hope you all have a great day PCSO, and be safe.
I applaud him for taking action! I'd like to think I'd respond the same way. I really hope he's not charged with some bs.
Quick thinking soldier, Thank You. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
His quick thinking saved lives. So many heroes out there!!
Thank GOD, lives was saved, because of the soldiers quite thinking. GOD BLESS YOU SIR.
So many heroes everywhere,thank you for being there to stop this guy.
Another American Badass Awesome
How awesome prayers for injured soldier for a full recovery
Any news from Minnesota? Or we just sweep that under the rug.
Cars don’t kill people, people kill people. New defense weapon.
Uh oh. Time to regulate the use of cars as weapons 😀
Here’s another example of how bad the Zero Bail policy is. This from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office:
“Just after midnight early Monday morning, our graveyard-shift deputies initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle with suspended and expired vehicle registration, in Auburn. The driver of the vehicle refused to pull over, and a pursuit was initiated. The driver sped through the city of Auburn, running red lights and crossing over double yellow lines. The pursuit spanned from Auburn to Foresthill, where a vehicle spike strip was successfully deployed to bring an end to the pursuit.
The driver, identified as 34-year old Kevin Grunebach of Novato, was arrested and charged with felony evading. Grunebach was released from jail several hours later under the emergency bail schedule (zero bail order). Shortly after his release, Grunebach walked across the street from the Auburn Jail and confronted a citizen sitting in his vehicle. Grunebach forced open the passenger door and got into the occupied vehicle, frightening the driver.
The same graveyard-shift deputies responded, and once again, Grunebach was uncooperative with deputies. He was arrested and booked into jail a second time, for charges of vehicle tampering and resisting arrest. Grunebach was released again several hours later, due to the emergency bail schedule.”
Zero Bail is a FAIL. Do YOU agree? … See MoreSee Less
It's like a revolving door. After a few trips, your "customers" feel they can do anything.and in some cases, do!. What a sad, dangerous affair! I salute law enforcement for your patience and dedication.
Kirk Uhler, is this something that can be addressed with the powers that be? With CA moving into Phase 2 and beyond, shouldn't the zero bail 'temporary initiatives' be lifted? I can find NO information published through the Judicial Counsel as to when these 'temporary emergency rules' will be lifted. As of 5/22 in Placer Superior Court, petitions relating to bail are being heard <– so why can't we protect our citizens with reinstituting bail? www.placer.courts.ca.gov/public_notice/COVID/CRIM%20Infographic%20-%20May%2022_FINAL.pdf
PCSO, and all other LEOs, are complying with the rules. I think zero bail is a farce, wastes time, and is totally unproductive.
If the driver of the vehicle had locked the doors and rolled the passenger window(s) down (or up) about halfway, the whole incident could have been avoided.
Has anyone of these fine upstanding citizens gone on to hurt or murder anyone on their zero bail vacation? And if it hasnt happened it will, at that point we will see lawsuits costing tax payers a life and more money… I guess the virtue signaling of those claiming bail for criminals is racist is more important than innocent lives… SMDH 🤬
It's an embarrassment you have to put up with this,yet sworn to uphold the law. Sorry Deputies, and thank you for staying after it just the same 💗
It shouldn't be zero bail, just make it NO bail. You have zero bail because bail isn't an option. That way it is just as equal, no matter, if you are poor or wealthy. Just stay there until your case is heard. No bail.
Totally agree. Former Governor Brown, current Governor Newsom, and those state legislators and senators that voted for this – literally have blood on their hands.
Have a question? I haven't heard in any of these phases by our delightful Governor Gavin Newsom as to when this zero bail can stop because of the decline in the number of the virus cases have you? Maybe our good governor should ponder just what phase that would come under hmmmm😠
This is complete insanity. Other than voting out the current administration, what rights do we as citizens have? We voted not once but TWICE to uphold the death penalty and our governor overturned it. Why vote if a measure is passed only to be eradicated? Good job PCSO!
Our GOVERNOR needs to be removed from office. Js
If they commit another crime after being released with no bail, they should not get a second chance! The criminals are obviously taking advantage of the situation and laughing at the law. How frustrating for law enforcement! They should be charged with special circumstances committing another crime and bail set or have to stay in jail.
So screwed up. I really feel for all our officers out there fighting this ridiculous policy and trying to keep us all safe at the same time. What a hard time to be an office. Thank you for your service. 💙
Yes I fully agree. You guys do your job, this criminal should stay in jail. There is not a pandemic that should ever allow criminals to be released and a zero bail clause. This is perpetuated by people with the wrong agenda for our state and country…..and globe. Bless you officers. We see you, we hear you, we stand with you!
Just a bit of history from the other side of the country. In the late 1960's one area in Florida had a dramatic increase in rapes and attempted rapes. The local police and sheriff's offices got word out that any woman who wanted to carry a firearm for self defense could receive training from law enforcement people on how to use it. Over the next very few weeks three or four attempting rapists were shot.
Guess what? The incident of rape in those areas dropped to well below the state average.
This is so wrong. Repeat offenders should not be on the street. The governor is just asking for someone to me murdered by someone that repeatedly is let out again. First no death pentally prisoners are going to be exucated now this. I feel for the sheriff's and police officers!!
MAJOR Fail!! Time for a RECALL! It must be incredibly frustrating for LE and prosecutors to watch this unfold. I agree with John Ferris and Noah Halperin; time to drop them off at Gavins. I’ll pay the mileage! 😉
This is Newsom’s legacy. As he progresses to that day when he declares his candidacy for president, $0 bail should be front and center for every ad against voting for him. Another example of progressive stupidity.
I think y’all are missing the point. The $0 bail program is designed to create chaos & anarchy to make people feel less safe, so they’ll allow the government to take more of their freedoms for the (empty) promise of more security.
That is an absolute joke.. Can’t believe we have to live with this kind of order.. Our sheriffs and police work so hard to keep everyone safe just for the criminals to walk away with less than a slap on the wrist. So disgraceful and disgusting. Makes me sick knowing people can’t feel safe because of their corrupt government/governor. Thanks to those who are still enforcing the laws that actually help better our communities, but you always gotta look out for yourself though especially in times like these…
They have no consequences for their crimes, no accountability for their actions so they will habitually repeat offend.
Pretty simple if you think about it.
Yes a definite Fail!
When i travel and people say where are you from, i always say Texas 😂 but its hard when i drive across country with my CA plates🤦🏽♀️🤯 feel so bad for the officers and victims.
All I can say is thank you for trying everything within your department's power to try to keep people safe. Zero bail is insane and the people who implemented it have blood on their hands. I can't find anything that we as citizens can do to have this ridiculousness overturned..
There are just no words…this is just so wrong on every level…but thank God for you all and all you do. Must be so stressful. This catch and release is ridiculous…what happens when an innocent person is hurt or killed? I'm sure that victim thought that was going to happen, so sad!
This is a disgrace. Law enforcements hands are tied and the criminals win. Where have common sense and morals gone? When the criminals start robbing and killing liberals the laws will change in California.
If you’re going to have to release them, release them all at the bottom of his driveway.
And hopefully the get the nervous shits and take care of business right there, just like he’s allowed to happen in the city streets.
MUST READ From CHP – South Sacramento:
“At approximately 1:30 am, the CHP – Sacramento Communications Center received a call from a driver informing them that he had crashed his vehicle into a an unknown water source and that the vehicle was quickly filling up with the liquid.
The driver told dispatch that he was on a dairy farm on Franklin Blvd in Unincorporated south Sacramento County near the City of Elk Grove. After approximately 48 minutes of searching, the driver was located by the Cosumnes Fire Department inside his vehicle partially submerged in a liquid manure storage pond 🐄 💩 .
South Sacramento CHP Area units arrived on scene and it was determined that the driver was in the manure pond for approximately one hour trying to get out of his vehicle before giving up and calling 9-1–1 for help. While talking to the driver, officers observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.
A subsequent DUI investigation revealed the driver was under the influence of alcohol and after spending almost two hours neck deep in 🐄 💩, he was arrested for DUI.”
Lesson: If you drive impaired, you may find yourself in some DEEP 💩
😆/🤮 … See MoreSee Less
He was probably a shit show before this happened and now after this “wipe-out” in poop lake he will have an even more shitty car! When the officer asked him if he was drinking he likely had diarrhea of the mouth and confessed to everything before being tossed in the “hole”. But this turd has probably been there many times before and doesn’t give a crap.
Omg!! I'm literally laughing out loud! I'm waiting in line at Raley's, minus mask, and I'm almost tearing up. Someone looked at me and suggested I wouldn't be laughing so hard if I had been wearing a mask. I.just.can't with some people! 🤣
Welp! That stinks! Hope he learned a lesson from this 💩 storm of an event.
Question? Will his car remain submerged til the cows come home?
I have never heard of a law enforcement agency with a sense of humor that you guys have. Maybe you guys should give yourself a ticket for being funny. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Those poor rescuers/dive team (and their families when they get home)!!
Soo he literally went up s*it creek without a paddle 😂😂
He'll have a "brown" mark on his driving record for a long time.
I bet his mom always told him to wear clean underwear in case you get in an accident. But now we'll never know if he was wearing clean underwear because he had the biggest "accident " of his life!
This is a toilet paper hoarders nightmare 😳
I bet when it happened he said "Oh sh!t!"
I could do this all day!!!
Truly a Crappy situation and with the TP shortage? I think a good hose down from the Cosumnes Fire Department would be welcomed by the driver. Sorry for the LEO chosen to take him into the Station… Somebody drew the short straw there… Shitty situation all the way around.
He should be thankful I wasn't on that rescue because he'd have drowned. My report would have read "subject was deceased upon arrival".
I know this is out of character for me but I believe justice has already been served. If I was the DA, I’d drop the charges, if I could stop laughing hysterically long enough to log the info on my laptop..
I feel bad for the cop that had to take the person to jail!
“liquid manure storage pond ”? That vehicle is totaled. But on the positive side, jail will smell better than his vehicle.
I hope the fire department hosed him down before handcuffing him and putting him in the cruiser otherwise, it would be a real shitty situation!! 😂😂
Since nothing else has stopped his driving impaired perhaps this s*it dip will !! Hope he got hosed down before you had to touch him !!
keep in mind insurance does not cover vehicle damage while engaged in a crime. Its a total loss for this dude. shit will hit the fan when he hears this.
I wonder how it was decided which patrol car he would ride in……hope it was sent out for immediate interior detailing.
Who swam in there and got him out? Did you have a trainee with you?
Nothing on this earth can fix stupidity with dangerous smelly people!! Some unfortunate officer had to transport their stinky rear to jail.
Besides the DUI, was the driver sited for trespassing and swimming without a PFD?
Holy shit, he shit can everything even himself. I hope he learned from this shitty experience that alcohol and driving do not mix.
Are we sure he didn’t test DUI from inhaling all the fumes for over an hour?
Oh gosh that’s terrible
What’s worse than being arrested for a DUI
Ending up in cow 🐄 💩 for an hour up to your neck
If you end up in a shit pond with your dump run trailer still attached you may have a drinking problem!
Well if this is not regarded as his Rock bottom I hate to see what else he has
Perfect blackmail ammo !
Tell a perp , this units the one that carried SHITMAN to jail !
And YOU can be next !
