Deputy Scott succumbed to a gunshot wound received two months earlier while in foot pursuit of a murder suspect. The man suddenly turned and opened fire, striking Deputy Scott. He remained paralyzed until his death two months later.

The suspect shot and killed the county attorney after he and Deputy Scott arrested him and several others for illegal gambling. Several officers shot and killed the suspect minutes later.

Deputy Scott had been with the agency for 10 years. He was survived by his wife.

Rest in Peace Special Deputy Hamill Poston Scott. Thank You both for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Tarrant County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Families, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that your murderer is basking in the flames of hell as I write this. I hope the hounds of hell forever gnaw at his bones.
