ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A St. Paul police officer received the highest honor from his department Thursday night for his bravery in a tragic situation.

Officer Dave Longbehn was presented with the Medal of Valor.

Last May, Longbehn helped track down the suspects involved in the murder of a Maplewood sergeant.

Even after he was attacked, Longbehn was able to shoot and kill the man who shot Sgt. Joe Bergeron.

    Amen to that. It’s funny how now a police officer does something as amazing as this and almost no one comments. But when a mistake is made all the dirtbags are on here throwing their two cents in all the time.
