It has been three years since Auburn police officer Ronald Tarentino, Jr. was killed in the line of duty.
On May 22, 2016, during a motor vehicle stop, Jorge Zambrano shot Officer Ronald Tarentino multiple times, ultimately killing him.
Zambrano, of Worcester, was shot and killed later that day by Massachusetts State Police officers as they were attempting to arrest Zambrano. Zambrano shot and wounded trooper A.J. Kardoos in the exchange.
Today, on the third anniversary of Officer Tarentino’s death, police departments across Worcester County and throughout the state have posted on social media honoring Officer Tarentino and the Auburn Police Dept.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 years.
We ask that you please join the Spencer Police Department with a kind thought or prayer for the Tarentino family and the Auburn Police Department #TarentinoCharitableFund #AuburnMAPolice pic.twitter.com/jkXeAZGqvX
