On Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, an officer-involved shooting occurred in the 50-block of Newcastle Lane.

The Coconino County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 41-year-old Jonathan David Messare, who was originally from Oregon and relocated to Sedona in the summer of 2019.

The photo is of the edge weapons recovered from Messare at the scene.

For more information on this incident, see prior posts.

Update on officer-involved shooting on Newcastle Lane:

On Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, an officer-involved shooting occurred in the 50-block of Newcastle Lane.

The Coconino County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as 41-year-old Jonathan David Messare, who was originally from Oregon and relocated to Sedona in the summer of 2019.

The two officers in this incident were Sgt. Casey Pelletier, an eight-year veteran with the Sedona Police Department, and Officer William Hunt, a 14-year veteran with the Sedona Police Department. Per the Sedona Police Department’s standard protocol related to all officer-involved shootings, Pelletier and Hunt have been placed on paid leave. Neither officer was injured.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) is still investigating this incident and as the Sedona Police Department gathers more details, additional information will be released.

“This was a significant, unfortunate event for all involved – for David Messare, his family and friends, the involved officers, our entire police department and our community. An officer hopes to go their entire career without having to discharge their weapon. Our hearts go out to everyone affected and we will continue to release details as we gather them," says Sedona Police Department Chief of Police Charles Husted.

The Sedona Police Department encourages any witnesses with information regarding this incident to contact the Arizona DPS at (602) 223-2212.

Below is a timeline of the events of the shooting:

- At 1:26 p.m., a resident on the 50-block of Newcastle Lane called 911 to report an unknown man shouting in the vicinity while in possession of a machete and a stick. The caller also indicated the man was possibly cutting himself with the machete.

- At 1:29 p.m., Sedona Police Department officers arrived on scene and contacted the subject.

- At 1:32 p.m., shots were fired at the subject and officers immediately called the Sedona Fire Department (SFD) for emergency medical care for the subject.

- At 1:40 p.m., the SFD declared the subject deceased at the scene.

This incident is being investigated by the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS). Per the Sedona Police Department’s protocol, the two Sedona Police officers involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative leave.

The identity of the suspect will be released by the Coconino County Coroner’s Office once the next of kin have been notified.

“This was a significant, unfortunate event for all involved – for the subject, his family, the officers and the community. An officer hopes to go their entire career without having to discharge their weapon. Our hearts go out to everyone affected," says Sedona Police Department Chief of Police Charles Husted.

SOLAR INSTALLATION AT CITY HALL

Sedona City Hall will host a 150 kilowatt solar system under the APS Solar Communities program. The solar photovoltaic system at City Hall will be installed on new carports in the parking lot. The city is paying the cost of deconstructing the existing, aging carports while APS pays for construction of new carports as well as the installation and operation of the solar panels.

The Solar Communities program is one of the ways in which APS is expanding access to solar statewide. APS will install, operate, and maintain the city’s solar photovoltaic system free of charge, and the city will receive a monthly bill credit from APS. Designed to enable non-residential customers as well as limited- and moderate-income customers to support clean energy, the program has installed nearly 590 solar projects statewide since July 2018.

The 150 installation at Sedona City Hall is one aspect of the city’s commitment to environmental sustainability. The benefits include cleaner air, increased energy security, and reduction of harmful emissions. The use of renewable energy will also reduce the city’s utility costs. “The project will save the city approximately $90,000 and produce clean energy over the next 20 years,” says Tammy Kasprowicz, Solar Communities Program Manager at APS.

The old carports were removed in early December and construction of the new carports is underway. The project is scheduled for completion in late January.

More information about APS’s Solar Communities program is available at aps.com/solarcommunities.
