Sergeant James Stiner was shot and killed after being abducted by a prisoner he was transporting from court.

During the court session, the prisoner somehow was passed a handgun which he hid until his return trip to jail. During the drive he made Sergeant Stiner driver to a remote area of desert where he fatally shot. The suspect later died of exposure after escaping.
