Officers involved in Martin's shooting return to duty

Two Elkhart police officers who shot gunman Sean Bair in the Martin’s Super Market on Jan. 15, will return to active duty today.

Officers Cody Skipper and Jason Tripp were taken off active duty while a review of their actions that night were completed. The department said no violations of policy or training were identified.

In a press release, the Elkhart Police Department said the two officer’s actions and performance were heroic and exceptional during the Martin’s incident.

Bair murdered two women and shot at a Martin’s employee and missed before police shot at him. Elkhart Prosecutor Curtis Hill said last month Bair shot himself with a handgun at the same time police bullets struck his heart.
