Names Of Officers Involved In East Moline Shooting Released

The names of the two East Moline officers who were involved in Saturday's shooting on has been released by Police Chief John Reynolds.

Officers Ryan Clark and Logan Wolfe were the officers involved in the wounding of 25 year old Darold Strunk. Clark has been with the police department since 2018 and Wolfe has been with the department since 2014. Both officers are patrolmen assigned to the 2nd shift patrol bureau.

Reynolds says the officers were in separate police cars, both of which were equipped with in-car video systems. The Integrity Task Force, which is currently investigating the shooting, has obtained the video from each squad car.

Both officers are still on paid administrative leave as the investigation continues. The East Moline Police Department is also conducting an internal investigation.

Illinois State Police say Strunk got out of the car and displayed a gun in “an aggressive manner” and fired his gun at one of the squad cars. The two East Moline police officers returned fire, as Strunk ran into a residential area with his gun.

Strunk was struck by the officer’s gunfire and was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
