BEND, OR -- The state trooper heralded as a hero following a deadly confrontation at the High Desert Museum in May of 2016, was honored for his actions, this weekend. 

 

Senior Trooper Richard Brannin was the first officer on scene, a man suffering mental problems took an employee at knifepoint inside the crowded museum. After the suspect was hit twice with a taser and continued to advance with the knife in hand, he was shot and killed by the trooper.
 
 
Brannin was honored with the Holly V. Holcomb award, which is given to OSP Troopers who distinguish themselves during a deadly confrontation with an armed and dangerous suspect. The agency said in a statement, "Sr. Trooper Brannin’s conduct and actions, represent the highest standards of an Oregon State Trooper. The courage he displayed in his response to the situation is a testament to the measure and strength of his character and exemplifies the qualities of an Oregon State Trooper."
