Video: Mich. Lt. discusses cop's death

Muskegon County Sheriff Lt. Shane Brown describes the bank robbery that resulted in the death of Officer Trevor Slot

MUSKEGON COUNTY — “Focus.”

That's the only clear thought Muskegon County Sheriff's Lt. Shane Brown could muster while speeding down the interstate, gunfire exploding around him during a deadly chase that began shortly after 11 a.m. on Oct. 13 following a bank robbery in Ravenna.

“When you're in that type of situation, a certain disconnect happens," Brown said in his first media interview since the incident. "But there is a moment when you have a second to realize what's going on. I thought, 'Focus. Focus on the task at hand.' ”

Brown never imagined that the men he was chasing — Kristopher Cheyne, 36, and Derryl LaFave Jr., 32, — would end up striking and killing Walker Police Officer Trevor Slot with their fleeing vehicle.
