December 20, 2010

A police recruit who was injured during a training exercise has died.

The Norfolk Police Department says 40-year-old John Kohn died Saturday morning at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Police spokeswoman Karen Parker-Chesson tells the Virginian-Pilot that Kohn had been in critical condition since he collided with another recruit Dec. 9 during driver training. Both were learning self-defense tactics at the Norfolk Police Department Academy.

Parker-Chesson says both were wearing protective gear. Funeral arrangements and memorials are incomplete.
