Inured Highway Patrol Trooper returns to work

Posted by Lucy

PIERRE, S.D – A South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper injured during a January standoff in Brule County has returned to work.
Sgt. John Koenig, a 28-year veteran of the Patrol, returned to full duty Monday. He is stationed in Chamberlain.
 “It is good to have Sgt. Koenig back,” said Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the Highway Patrol.  “Along with John and his family, we are thankful that he has been able to return to full duty.”
Koenig was shot Jan.  7 when he responded to a report of an individual threatening law enforcement officers. The subject was located at a home near Kimball where a 24-hour stand-off with law enforcement took place. While Koenig’s injuries were not considered life-threatening, he spent several days in a Sioux Falls hospital and then time recuperating at home.
“Sgt. Koenig serves as a reminder of the dangers Highway Patrol troopers and other law enforcement face while protecting and serving South Dakotans every day,” said Price.
Two people in the home eventually surrendered, ending the standoff after 24 hours. The two men face criminal charges.
