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.

Final Call
An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.
Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way.
Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through.
Come Hand Your Hat Beside Mine. I'm A Cop, Too.
