The Washington State Patrol has identified the trooper shot and killed near Port Orchard early this morning as 44-year old Tony Radulescu, assigned to the state patrol office in Bremerton.

Trooper Radulescu was a 16 year veteran of the agency, having begun state service in 1995.  He served his entire career in the Bremerton district.  

“We’ve lost a co-worker, and the citizens of Washington have lost a humble public servant,” said Chief John R. Batiste. “Tony was the kind of person everyone wanted to be around, including me. I truly enjoyed working with him.”

Trooper Radulescu was popular outside the patrol as well. He was well-known in the community for the many visits and presentations he did at local schools.

Funeral arrangements are pending. Several members of Trooper Radulescu’s family live out of state, and the patrol will defer to their wishes regarding a service.

If you have any information about the case itself, please contact Sgt. Ken Dickinson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office at (360) 340-2992.
