Patrolman Harry Tiffany and Patrolman Ronald Ebeltoft were shot and killed after responding to a dispute between two neighbors over the placement of a rose bush. During the dispute one of the men assaulted the other. As both officers were standing outside of the suspect's home the man snuck up behind them and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing them both.

A SWAT sniper later shot and killed the suspect.

Patrolman Tiffany had served with the agency for two years. He was survived by his wife.

I worked with Keith and Ron out of the Western Division. A few days before, Ron fixed my flashlight for me. I was off for the birth of my first son( 6/4/81). I still remember hearing the news to this day and every so often I say their names to myself to honor their memories. Two kind men gone, but never forgotten as long as I live.
