Officer Samuel Redhouse was shot and killed in Iyanbito, New Mexico, during a shootout with a man who was reported as being despondent. When Officer Redhouse and four deputies from the McKinley County Sheriff's Department arrived the suspect opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Redhouse.

The suspect was shot and killed by the deputies at the scene. The man had been scheduled to turn himself in to the U.S. Marshals Service earlier in the day as a result of a conviction of a sexual crime against a minor.

Officer Redhouse was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Navajo Division of Public Safety for seven years. He was assigned to the Crownpoint District. He was survived by his wife and two small children.

My thoughts turn to you today, the sorrow is still present. You were my best friend and miss you dearly. You always looked out for me, always there to offer guidance in any way. Tears still flow, treating my sorrow and grief. Just as you had left for the military years ago. Like you said, miles and miles apart, we'll always be heart to heart. Someday we'll meet again.

Missing you, friend
