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 called from home to respond to the incident since he lived nearby and the on-duty deputy was on the other side of the county. 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.

Sean always put others first. He was the kind of man you would dream your son to be. Knowing him since 6th grade, and later being engaged to him until distance drew us apart, the report of his death in the line of duty was shocking to me but he died doing what he loved. He was an incredible role model, first male in the state of Oklahoma to earn the WoHeLo medallion from Camp Fire Boys and Girls (equivalent to Eagle Scout) and he took care of his single mother with absolute respect. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten. My prayers for all officers who face the evil in this world on a daily basis. May you return safely at the end of each shift and may you always find the good in the world to counter the bad you see each day. God bless our law enforcement officers and their families.
