Carson City Deputy Carl Howell Killed in the Line of Duty

Recommended Posts

Seems to be happening much quicker than every 9 days.  RIP Deputy Howell.    RV ME


A Deputy with the Carson City Sheriff's Office was killed early Saturday Morning while responding to a domestic violence call. He has since been identified as Carl Howell. 


At 2:18 a.m., the Carson City Sheriff's Office responded to that call in the 4100 Block of Montez Drive in East Carson City. When officers arrived they found a female with injuries. Howell went to make contact with the shooter, since identified as 31 year old Jonathan Pope, who appeared to be armed with a firearm. The two exchanged gunfire and both men were struck. Howell was taken to the hospital, Carson-Tahoe Health where he succumbed to his injuries. Pope was pronounced dead on the scene. 


Sheriff Furlong says three children between the ages of 8 and 13 were taken out of the home and away from the scene. 

The Reno Police Department is now investigating the shooting. Anyone with any information on this case is asked to contact the Reno Police Department at (775) 334-2188 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900.


Deputy Carl Howell was a 9 year veteran of the Carson City Sheriff's office. He leaves behind a wife and four small children. 


A procession of about ten Carson City Sheriff's cars brought the fallen Deputy from the hospital to the Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office in Reno Saturday morning. One Deputy in the processional told us that he was "a father, a friend, and a good cop."


The wives of other Carson City Deputies held a candlelight vigil to pay their respects Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. A very large crowd gathered at the peace officers memorial at the Capital Building in Carson City.  


Please contact the Carson City Sheriff's Office for information on funeral arrangements or donations to Deputy Howell's family at (775) 887-2500.
