Sergeant Kent Kincaid was shot and killed after confronting several suspects who damaged his windshield while he and his wife were driving to meet friends for dinner.

An object was thrown from a pickup truck driving in the opposite direction, striking the windshield of his vehicle. Sergeant Kincaid turned around and followed the vehicle for several blocks until it stopped, at which point he approached the vehicle and identified himself as a police officer.

One subject in the vehicle fired a single shot that struck him in the head. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The subject was eventually arrested and sentenced to death.

Sergeant Kincaid had served with the Houston Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife and two young daughters.

To the family of Officer Kincaid,
I just watched the show regarding the stay of execution your husband's killer had received. I did see information regarding the sentencing phase of Anthony Haynes. I cannot believe he has any thought in his head that he can come across as a good person with a one time mistake. He has been a menace to society and his family most of his life and there is no rehabilitation. The death penalty is the correct and only decision that can be made in this case. I pray for you and your family to stay well through these times. God is with you as his your husband and dad. I wouldn't waste a moment on this low life. WE ALL SEE THROUGH THE ACT HE PUT ON.
