Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: OH   USA   Sat. Jan. 14, 1995
Summary: Lieutenant John Gisclon was shot and killed after stopping a suspicious man walking along Route 250 at 0300 hours.

While working a nearby breaking and entering case, Lieutenant Gisclon had stopped the man, suspecting he was a second suspect in the break-in. Before approaching the man Lieutenant Gisclon called for backup; however, when the Ohio Highway Patrol Trooper arrived he did not see Lieutenant Gisclon and was ambushed by the suspect and shot twice. The trooper was able to return fire, and after a hand-to-hand fight the suspect was shot and killed. The trooper found Lieutenant Gisclon lying in the roadway unconscious. Lieutenant Gisclon was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

It was later determined that Lieutenant Gisclon's death was not at all connected to the earlier burglary but that his killer did have a history of mental illness.

Lieutenant Gisclon had been with the agency for 22 years and had previously served in Vietnam with the United States Army. He was survived by his wife and two daughters.p
