Deputy Kolb was shot and killed when he was ambushed at a shots fired call. He had responded to the call while he was off duty because he was the closest officer to the scene. As he was approaching the residence he identified himself as a deputy and was then shot in the neck and chest by the suspect, who was using an AK-47. Deputy Kolb was not wearing a bullet proof vest. Other officers who the arrived on the scene found the suspect hiding under a trailer. The suspect fired at them as well and was killed when the officers returned fire.

Deputy Kolb had served with the Kendall County Sheriff's Department for 3 years and is survived by his wife and two young sons.

Our Brother Larry, has been gone 15 years today. Time dulls the pain but never replaces the hole in your heart. Larry would be proud to know that our son, Jared became an officer because of him. Also he became a k-9 officer and when his Malinois arrived from overseas, we discovered that he (Achilles) was born on the anniversary of Larry's death. We know Achilles was send by Larry to protect our son while he protects and serves. We are remembering our beloved Brother, Son, Father and celebrating the 3rd Birthday of this special K-9 and the dedication and service of all officers both fallen and active.
