    Incident Details
    Cause of Death: Gunfire
    Date of Incident: Tuesday, December 5, 1967
    Weapon Used: Handgun
    Suspect Info: Not available

    Officer Stephens was shot and killed during a robbery of a local restaurant while moonlighting as a security guard. Officer Stephens was accompanying the manager as he counted the day's receipts in preparation for making a night deposit.

    Several suspects entered the restaurant in an attempt to rob it. The suspects shot and killed Officer Stephens and the manager after stealing the money. It is believed both men were shot because Officer Stephens recognized one of the suspects.

    Officer Stephens had served with the agency for just over 7 years. He was survived by his two children.


    a side note to this story, This Officer was honored this last week, and his son and family was there. I will have photos of that soon, CB2 gave his son the biggest hug, we all showed him our love for what his dad done.

    it was a very sad moment, his son was fighting back tears, but now he knows how much Love we have for his family. His dad will NEVER be forgotten!

    Am I reading correctly that this happened in 1967?

    RIP to the officer. I am moving this, however, to General Topics, so as to avoid confusion of this being a recent LODD.

    I know how you feel. It angers and saddens me when people forget the fallen, especially when it's an officer from their own area that served there for a number of years and gave his life to protect them. May we never forget.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
