The Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw has presented a Purple Heart to a State Trooper serving in Paris. Trooper Tim Keele observed a suspicious person sitting on the concrete barrier in the middle of Loop 286 and when he made made contact with the suspect the man became belligerent and a struggle ensued. Keele subsequently deployed his Taser, but it was ineffective; and the man again attacked Keele, dislocating the Trooper’s shoulder. Fearing for his life, Keele shot the suspect, who died at the scene.
