Kiv Phillips

Deputy Kiv Phillips was shot and killed after responding to a bar, in Tombstone, after receiving reports that a man was threatening patrons with a gun. The bar owner had sent a messenger to notify the Sheriff but the messenger encountered Deputy Phillips on his way and told him instead. Deputy Phillips rushed to the bar and was shot when he arrived at the scene. He was able to return fire and fatally wounded the suspect, who died two days later.

Deputy Phillips was survived by his sister and four brothers.
