Deputy Sheriff Adam Streicher was shot and killed while attempting to serve a warrant on a 60-year-old man for misdemeanor failure to appear in court.

After shooting Deputy Streicher, the subject then shot two of his neighbors whom he had a long standing dispute with and then fled in Deputy Streicher's patrol car. The man was shot and wounded by other officers. He was convicted of Deputy Streicher's murder and sentenced to death. In June 2008 the inmate committed suicide in his prison cell.

Deputy Streicher had served with the Stark County Sheriff's Department for one year. He was survived by his parents, brother and sister.

I never had the opportunity to meet Deputy Streicher but I can say I was blessed to meet his parents. Thank you Mr & Mrs Streicher for being present during the Concerns of Police Survivors Seminar in Bettendorf, IA. It was a pleasure and an Honor to meet you and your wife. Thank you for all you do!
