Officer Chris McCormick was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a prowler call in a usually quiet neighborhood. The suspect shot Officer McCormick in the left shoulder with a small caliber weapon, causing a fatal wound.

A canine who later found the suspect hiding under a house was shot and wounded. Other officers returned fire and wounded the suspect. The suspect was convicted of first-degree murder in 1996, but in 2008 the ruling was overturned and the suspect was mandated to a state or private mental institution due to paranoid delusions.

Officer McCormick had served with the agency for 3 years. He is survived by his wife and five children.

Today, I awakened and realized that it was the 20th anniversary of your death. It has been 20 years without you being there for me. I still remember vividly remember the night I saw you for the last time. I miss your sense of humor, your mischievousness and that silly grin. I miss those times that we ate bread and butter and drank coffee in my kitchen at 3:00 in the morning because you awakened me just for that. I know that one day soon i will see you in the resurrection.
