PharosTribune Regional Reporter That was the cost of a tank of gas for the 1986 red Thunderbird two Carroll County teens were driving Wednesday evening in Utah They didnt want to pay But Officer Dennis L Lund paid with his life Lund 37 was a sevenyear veteran offi cer of the Utah Highway Patrol On Wednesday night he joined other officers in the pursuit of a car driven by Jason Scott Pearson IS of Rt 2 Delphi and George Kennedy 16 of Camden The two had run away from Indiana and traveled to Utah They allegedly filled up their gas tank at a Texaco gas station in Thompson Utah and left without paying What happened next isnt quite clear But the end result of that day is that Lund of Green River Utah is dead and the two Carroll County teens are in custody Both teens may be charged with capital homicide charges in the shooting death of a police officer Emery County Attorney Mark Tanner has stated he plans to ask the court to try Kennedy as an adult The teens are scheduled to be arraigned at 1 to day The events of Wednesday night began at about 8 when Pearson and Kennedy drove away from the gas station Police were then notified and a subsequent police check showed that the car they were driving was stolen and the two were wanted in an investigation in Carroll County But the two apparently werent ready to pull over They traveled westbound on 170 Police say Pearson was driving and Kennedy was a passenger in the front seat A county deputy tried to pull them over but they sped off and the chase said Highway Patrol Sgt James Matthies He said that at about police from area agencies set up a roadblock and spike set designed to blow out the Thun derbirds tires but the car simply jumped the median and started traveling west on the eastbound lanes At that time Lund pulled ahead of the two parked his car in the road and tried to shoot one of the cars tires out He missed and the two kept on driving Lund was forced to get back in his car and continue the pursuit During the whole time the kids were shooting at the officers with what we be lieve to be a 12gauge shotgun and a 22 ri Matthies said Luckily they didnt hit That is until Lund pulled up next to the twos car He attempted to get alongside next to them and then around them again and they just pointed the 22 at him and Matthies said They hit him once in the But that wasnt the end Lund still con scious pulled over to the side of the road and picked up the radio See UTAH Page A4 Stopping To Smell The Flowers Want To Go Q Garden Tour sponsored by Logansport Art Association Tickets are available
