Chief of Police Milton Antone was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a fugitive in Arizona.

He arrived at the scene to assist members of the Pinal County Sheriff's Office in the investigation of possible child abuse when the suspect pulled .38 caliber revolver on the original officer. Chief Antone exchanged gunfire with the suspect and was fatally wounded by one round. The suspect was killed by another officer minutes later.

The suspect was believed to be an illegal alien from Mexico, but his identity was never confirmed.

Chief Antone had served with the Ak-Chin Tribal Police Department for eight years, but had only been chief for eight months.
