Captain McCurley was shot and killed while serving a drug search warrant. Captain McCurley was shot 18 times after the front door was broken down. The suspect used an AK-47 equipped with a 100 round drum. The couple at the home were wearing body armor and engaged other officers in a gunfight, wounding three more officers. The male suspect was shot and wounded before both suspects were taken into custody. Captain McCurley had just been appointed chief of the Etowah County drug task force.

Chris was one of the kindest police officers I've ever now. I observed long before his murder that he was kind to people when he didn't have to be and at at times when other were not. Chris was a devoted husband and father. I'm certain he is with The Lord.
