The man was at a friend's house at the time when Deputy Graham arrived to serve the warrants. As he exited his cruiser, the suspect opened fire, fatally wounding him. The suspect had warrants for assault and making a false police report. The man was arrested several hours later after being spotted in nearby farmland and charged with capital murder.
