Patrolman Glover died at 0627 hours on November 18, 1997, from gunshot wounds he suffered on November 17, 1997, while chasing a robbery suspect. Patrolman Glover observed the suspect who was wanted and approached him. Upon doing so the suspect began to run, with Patrolman Glover in pursuit. During the foot chase the suspect turned and shot him in the right shoulder. After Patrolman Glover fell the suspect approached him and shot him two more times execution style at a range of 2 to 12 inches. The suspect was later taken into custody and sentenced to death on June 8, 1998.

My husband and I were the first to see Officer Glover lying on the ground behind our garage. It was such a sad scene. Our best wishes to his wife and children.
