  • Trooper Dugald A. Pellot
    Oct 23, 2020

    July 21, 1934 - September 30, 1957

    Tpr. Dugald A. Pellot was killed by gunfire while attempting to apprehend two subjects in Lenawee County who had shot and seriously wounded another trooper.

    Trooper Pellot and his partner had stopped one of two suspected vehicles. Trooper Pellot stayed with the first vehicle while his partner pursued the other car. The driver of the stopped vehicle managed to secure a weapon from within the car. Trooper Pellot was shot before he could take action and died at the scene. The subjects escaped even though the slain trooper’s partner fired rounds into their vehicle.

    The subjects fled into Indiana where they shot a city police officer and two Indiana state troopers. One of the troopers later died of his wounds. The suspect that shot Trooper Pellot was killed by Indiana authorities as he attempted to run a police roadblock. The other suspect was apprehended and received a life sentence in an Indiana prison.

    Trooper Pellot was the 21st MSP officer to die in the line of duty.
