Postby explorer2770 on Wed Sep 09, 2015 10:42 pm

Tonight, the Lansing, Michigan FD is reporting the death of Firefighter Dennis Rodeman, a seven year veteran of the department and former United States Marine.

Earlier today, FF Rodeman was participating in the "Fill the Boot" campaign for the MDA when he was intentionally run over by a pickup. Bystanders report that an argument occurred between FF Rodeman and the driver, after which the driver drove past Rodeman, then turned around and run over Rodeman. The pickup driver then fled the scene and was chased by police, he was later apprehended after a short foot chase. Rodeman was transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The driver is in jail awaiting charges of open murder and felony fleeing/eluding charges.

Firefighter Rodeman is survived by his wife, she is pregnant with their first child.

I will post more information once it is available.
