Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location:   Dale, VA   USA   Thu. Nov. 22, 1990
Summary: Officer Pennington was shot and killed on Thanksgiving Day after he and other officers responded to the home of a man who had shot a county sheriff's deputy.

Officer Pennington and other members of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team were attempting to serve a search warrant related to the shooting of a law enforcement officer. As the SWAT team surrounded the home, Officer Pennington and other officers knocked on the door and identified themselves.

Upon entering, the suspect was seen inside armed with a handgun. Officer Pennington, the assistant team leader, attempted to negotiate with the suspect to get him to surrender his weapon. Without warning, the suspect revealed a high-powered assault rifle and shot and fatally wounded Officer Pennington.

The assailant was killed moments later by another SWAT team member.

Disposition: Officer Pennington had been shot and wounded in an unrelated drug raid 11 months earlier.

Five years after the shooting his wife was sworn in as a Prince William County police officer. Philip Michael Pennington Elementary School in Manassas is named for the fallen officer.
