Officers Gregory A. Hauser and Raymond Kilroy were shot and mortally wounded when they responded to a domestic disturbance between a woman and her grandson. As they talked to the grandson in a garage, he suddenly grabbed one of the officers’ weapons. The suspect then fired several shots, striking both Officer Hauser and Officer Kilroy.
The suspect was apprehended and sentenced to life.
The officers were partners until the end, having joined the Department together twenty years earlier. Officer Hauser is survived by his wife and three children.
