Former Sergeant Brian Stooke is a hero and a survivor. He is one of seven police officers shot by "Mad Max" or Pavel Marinoff in June, 1985.
Brian was shot four times, one bullet severing his spine making him a paraplegic. But he returned to work and was awarded the Victoria Police Star for his action on duty. He's a remarkable man and continued to make a difference in the job he loves, despite his injury.
Brian's encounter with Mad Max sparked one of Victoria's biggest man-hunts ever. He remembers that night he was shot on The Crime Couch.
