Police Chief Dismissed From Cocopah Police Department

The Cocopah Police Department says they have released Police Chief James Spurgeon. The Yuma Sun is reporting the chief was dismissed following an incident last week in which Josh Collins was killed. Collins also served in the U.S. Army and was an Arizona National Guard Reserve member. Spurgeon responded to the Rio Santa Fe Apartments on Saturday in response to an incident. When he arrived, Collins was found with an apparent self inflicted shotgun wound.
