Please say a prayer for Officer Holte and his family.*Shot and Killed In the Line Of Duty* North Dakota - Rest In Peace Grand Forks Police Department Police Officer Cody Holte, age 29, was shot and killed after responding as backup to save fellow officers who were under heavy gunfire while serving eviction-related paperwork. End Of Watch: May 27, 2020. A Grand Forks Deputy Sheriff was also shot and wounded and a female was shot and killed. (details within)
Please, we ask, #SayHisName - Officer/Brother Cody Holte - not just "R.I.P." or a run of ridiculous emojis. When you SAY HIS NAME, you will REMEMBER HIS NAME and A HERO REMEMBERED ... NEVER DIES
On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, 1430hrs(local), two Grand Forks Sheriff's Office Deputies went to an apartment at 2627 South 17th Street to serve a Writ of Restitution as ordered by a Judge (eviction-related paperwork). The Writ of Restitution ordered Deputies to remove a male and a female resident and all possessions as of three days prior.
Uniformed deputies knocked on the apartment door and received no answer. The Deputies then gained access to the apartment and observed the male retreat to a bedroom.
Deputies gave several commands for him to come out of the bedroom. As he refused, the Deputies then eventually deputies opened the bedroom door.
Upon doing so, they were met with a barrage of heavy gunfire.
Corporal Ron Nord, a 34 year Law Enforcement veteran, was shot in the upper leg and abdomen. He has been the Civil process Deputy with the Sheriff’s Office for 9 years. He is in stable condition. Our healing prayers are with him and his family.
Sergeant Kelly McLean, a 28 year veteran to the GFSO and former assistant team leader of the Grand Forks Regional SWAT Team, was not injured.
The Deputies immediately retreated from the room and radioed for back-up.
Grand Forks Police Department officers arriving on scene were Corporal Patrick Torok, a 27+ year veteran of the GFPD, and a 25+ year veteran of the Grand Forks Regional SWAT Team, along with Officer Cody Holte, a 3 year and 3 month veteran of the GFPD, and a member of the Grand Forks Sheriff’s Office Regional Water Rescue Team.
Corporal Torok and Officer Holte immediately entered into the apartment, coming to the aid of the deputies under fire.
Gunfire was exchanged in multiple volleys between the suspect and the officers on scene. Through the exchanges, the suspect, age 41, received several gunfire wounds. Aid was rendered on scene, and he was transported to Altru for his injuries.
Lola Moore, age 61, was killed by gunfire during the course of the incident. Our prayers are with her family.
Officer Cody Holte suffered multiple gunfire wounds during the incident. Emergency medical aid was rendered by officers who then carried Officer Holte to the ambulance for transport to Altru Hospital.
Sadly, Grand Forks Police Officer Cody Holte succumbed to gunshot wounds and was pronounced at the hospital.
Grand Forks Police Chief Mark Nelson stated: "There’s a hole in my heart that can never be plugged. These people wear a badge, these people protect your community, these people ask for nothing in return other than an honest salary.
Remember, it is not how this officer died, it is how this officer lived that made him a true hero.”
Cody was also a First Lieutenant in the North Dakota National Guard.
Brother Cody leaves behind his beloved wife, infant son, and families. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the families, both of blood and of Blue - from all of us at True Blue Warriors
We will update charges once official.
