Deputy Louis Wallace was shot and killed after he and his partner made a stop of a suspicious person. As they were patting the suspect down over the hood of their cruiser the man suddenly produced a .32 caliber handgun from the crotch-area of his pants and opened fire, striking Deputy Wallace, and his partner in the knee.

Despite being mortally wounded, Deputy Wallace was able to return fire and kill the suspect. He told responding deputies to transport his wounded partner to the hospital first. Deputy Wallace died while en route to the hospital.
