PRESIDENTIAL AWARD: Shot Trooper At White House
An Iowa state trooper shot in the line of duty got national recognition from the president at the White House Saturday.
State Trooper Mark Domino was one of ten officers honored at the 2013 National Association of Police Organizations Top Cops ceremony.
Domino was shot in the arm while chasing two bank robbers in northeast Iowa back in October 2012. He continued to chase Jeremiah Mumford, 25, and , 19. They were found with over $15,000 of cash taken from Maynard Savings Bank.
In a plea agreement, Mumford and Clayton were sentenced last week to 50 years in prison.
The men were first charged with 1st degree robbery, terrorism and two counts of attempted murder.
As part of the plea deal, prosecutors dropped the terrorism charge.
During the President’s speech, Domino got to stand right next to the Commander-in-Chief.
The ten officers are being recognized for their outstanding courage and service to their communities.
