Marcus Schumacher Domestic Incident Debrief

In February 2016, Fargo Police Department officers responded to a domestic disturbance incident during which shots had been fired.  As patrol responded and began to set up a perimeter, suspect Marcus Schumacher fired rounds from inside his residence, killing Officer Jason Moszer while he was getting into his perimeter position.  This debrief will discuss the patrol response, the murder of Officer Jason Moszer and the ensuing SWAT Team response and resolution.  The discussion will include audio from phone calls with Schumacher, squad video and radio traffic, and the tactics used to bring the incident to a conclusion.
