Deputy Hill died one month after being dragged by a vehicle. He was attempting to arrest the suspects that were inside the vehicle.

Deputy Hill was off duty when he witnessed a shooting outside a nightclub in Harris County. He followed the suspect's vehicle into the City of Houston and approached the passenger side of the vehicle when it stopped. Several shots were exchanged. Deputy Hill was dragged as the vehicle was driven through the intersection. Deputy Hill then fell to the ground, where he was struck by another vehicle which was following behind.

Deputy Hill had been employed with the Harris County Sheriff's Department for three years, and is survived by his parents, brother, and three sisters.

I remember coming to work at IPC on mids, and talking with Oscar on numerous occasions... I remember the night that I answered the call that came in to IPC to verify him, and report of this travesty. I don't think I'll ever forget that call, or the smile that always seemed to be on Oscar's face.
