Deputy Walter Hannan was killed while responding to an officer needs assistance call at the intersection of Avalon Blvd and Domingues Street in Carson. He and his partner, Deputy Archuletta, were responding with their emergency equipment activated to assist another deputy who had requested assistance.

A Chevy Nova pulled in front of Deputy Hannan's patrol car, causing him to take evasive action to prevent hitting the vehicle. He lost control of the patrol car, which struck a metal utility pole killing Deputy Hannan instantly. Deputy Hannan's partner was severely injured and was later medically retired.

Deputy Hannan was assigned to the Carson Sheriff Station.

Deputy Hannon, my class mate and friend. Class #155. You and I worked out for the PT test together at the academy. You helped me get in shape to max out on the test. Miss you Deputy.
