Officer Paladini was killed when he was accidentally struck by a bullet which ricocheted off of a trailer. He and a local sheriff's deputy stopped to assist at an accident involving a horse trailer. One of the horses was badly injured and the owner asked the officers to shoot it. The deputy fired three rounds, one of which ricocheted off of the trailer and struck Officer Paladini.

Officer Paladini had been with the agency for nine months.
