Sergeant Hoskie Gene was killed after responding to a call of breaking and entering at a local store. Sergeant Gene discovered two men fleeing on foot and gave chase. A struggle ensued and Sergeant Gene was strangled by one suspect as the second suspect beat him with a flashlight. Sergeant Gene died of the strangulation. The two suspects stole his patrol car, gun, and ammunition. Another unit was dispatched to check on him and discovered his body around 1:30 am along Arizona Route 98.

The two suspects were apprehended the next day after crashing the patrol car.

Sergeant Gene had served with the Navajo Division of Public Safety for 3 years and was assigned to the Kayenta District. He is survived by his five children and seven grandchildren.

To the family of this brave officer!
I used to call on stores on the Rez for 13 years. I remember when this assault took place as it was an area I traveled many times.
Totally senseless.
May God Bless and comfort you all!
