The Officers And Deputies Involved In The Fatal Summit County Police Shooting Have Been Identified

On Wednesday, it was revealed who was responsible for the deadly shooting of a teenager in a Summit County neighborhood: a police officer and a sheriff’s deputy.

According to the Summit County District Attorney’s Office, Summit County Sheriff’s Deputy Vincent Moquin and Dillon Police Officer Allen Jambor both fired their firearms early on Sunday morning in the Summit Cove neighborhood.

Jambor, a patrol officer, joined the Dillon Police Department in 2013 and has been in law enforcement ever since, according to a news release from the district attorney’s office. Moquin has worked for the sheriff’s office for two years as a patrol deputy.

According to Lt. Wanda Wilkerson of the sheriff’s office, the incident started at 7:20 a.m. when officials received a report of a guy “wandering in the neighborhood, waving a firearm and banging on residents’ doors.”

The juvenile confronted Jambor and Moquin and pointed a gun at them at the junction of Idlewild and Summit roads, according to Wilkerson.
