Officer Taylor was shot and killed after conducting a vehicle stop one block off of Hackelburg's main street. The vehicle was stopped behind the home of one of the suspects. As Officer Taylor was talking to one of the vehicles occupants, the other occupant walked over to his house and retrieved a 12-gague shotgun. He then returned and shot and killed Officer Taylor.

Officer Taylor was found the following morning in a hunched forward position, face down. His.38 caliber pistol was found laying on the ground a few inches from his hand. The hammer on his firearm was still cocked but none of the six rounds had been fired.

Both suspects were later arrested and one was sentenced to life in prison.

I'm originally from Hackleburg, AL and am now in my 20th year of law enforcement service in Central Florida. Officer Taylor, Sir, you may have died alone and left in the street by the sub-humans responsible for your death but I hope you know you are forever carried on the shoulders of your fellow brothers and sisters in law enforcement for all eternity. You will not be forgotten.
