Officer Reagan was shot and killed while attempting to stop a robbery at a local bar while off-duty. He was inside of the bar when three men entered and announced a holdup. Officer Reagan drew his off-duty weapon and identified himself, at which point the third suspect, who Officer Reagan had not seen, shot him. As he lay on the ground all three suspects shot him several more times.

All three suspects were convicted of Officer Reagan's murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Officer Reagan had been with the agency for five years. He was survived by his wife and two children.
