Patrolman Leon Scott was shot and killed while responding to a disturbance at a local restaurant. When he arrived at the location he walked into the restaurant, not realizing that the armed suspect was standing outside of the front door. The man followed him into the restaurant and then held him and the cook at gunpoint.

Another officer arrived at the scene and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon. As the suspect opened fire, Patrolman Scott and the other officer returned fire, wounding the man. Patrolman Scott was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life without parole. He died in prison in 2007.

Patrolman Scott had served with the agency for 12 years. He was survived by his wife and three children.
