Trooper who shot, killed motorist is named

ST. PAUL — The Minnesota State Patrol has identified the trooper who shot and killed a motorist after she dragged him with her vehicle.

State Patrol Lt. Col. Matt Langer said Monday the trooper was David Kalinoff. Langer says Kalinoff has been with the agency for 12 years.

Kalinoff stopped the vehicle of Debra Doree on Saturday. Authorities say Kalinoff noticed what appeared to be drugs in her car, and as he was checking it out the 48-year-old Landfall woman tried to speed off.

Langer says Kalinoff's arm got entangled in Doree's steering wheel, and he was dragged about 200 feet before he shot her.

Kalinoff suffered minor injuries to his wrist, arm and knees. He has been put on leave while the incident is investigated.
