NOVI, Mich., June 23, 2024 — The Detroit Free Press reported today that Oakland County Sheriff’s Deputy Bradley Reckling was fatally shot in the line of duty on Saturday night. State Rep. Kelly Breen (D-Novi), chair of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding the incident:

“Any first responder’s death in the line of duty is a tragedy, but coming on the heels of officers coping with the recent mass shooting in Rochester Hills is horrific. While it’s poor solace, I’m glad Michigan State Police personnel were able to quickly make arrests, and I hope the accused are swiftly brought to justice. My heart goes out to Detective Reckling’s family and to all the brave men and women in the Sheriff’s Department who continue putting their lives on the line to keep our hometowns safe.”
