VIRGINIA STATE POLICE MOURN THE LOSS OF
Special Agent Michael T. Walter

Michael Walter

1971 – 2017

The Virginia State Police are mourning the line-of-duty death of one of their own.  Special Agent Michael T. Walter, an 18-year veteran with the Department, was fatally shot on May 26, 2017.   Special Agent Walter and a Richmond Police officer had walked up to a vehicle stopped on Redd Street in the city and were talking with the driver, when the passenger shot Special Agent Walter. Special Agent Walter was transported to VCU Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries shortly after 5:00 a.m. May 27, 2017.

Special Agent Walter, 45, was born in Philadelphia, Penn., and was a decorated veteran during his service with the USMC from 1989 to 1994.

Special Agent Walter entered the Virginia State Police Academy in 1998 and graduated as a member of the 98th Basic Session in 1999.  As a trooper, he was assigned to the Virginia State Police Fairfax Division’s Area 48 Office – Springfield and the Richmond Division’s Area 6 Office – Powhatan.  In 2006, he joined the State Police Academy staff as a canine instructor.  In 2010, he was promoted to the rank of Special Agent and has been assigned ever since to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Richmond Field Office Drug Enforcement Section.

Special Agent Walter is survived by his wife and three children.

Funeral arrangements are pending at this time.
