Deputy Sean Earp was killed in an accident while responding to the scene of a man with a gun call. Deputy Earp was at home with his family when the call came out.

He responded to the location and informed dispatch that the suspect was already gone and that he was going to attempt to locate him. That was the last radio traffic received from him. Dispatch then received calls about a major accident near the scene. Deputy Earp was killed in that accident.
He had been a reserve deputy and dispatcher for the department prior to becoming a deputy. He is survived by his family.
