Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. (This is NOT a fundraiser, although this website does solicitations; we are not seeking funds.) We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Your kindness means more than words can express.
At approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday December 20th, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Communication Center advising that a wildlife officer had been shot and needed assistance. Wildlife officers and ODNR officers working in the area responded for assistance, as well as officers from the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio State Highway Patrol. Kevin and his assignment partner were investigating a deer poaching complaint in the area of Macedonia Road and Martinsville Road when the shooting occurred.
Kevin Behr, a 25-year veteran of the Division, sustained a gunshot wound during this investigation and as a result was airlifted from the scene and taken to a trauma center for injuries sustained during the shooting. Three suspects were taken into custody shortly after the incident.
