Trooper Nikky Green was shot and killed after he stopped to check on a vehicle parked on the side of the road which had its trunk and hood open.

Trooper Green informed his dispatcher at about 0700 that he was out with a possible disabled vehicle on the north side of Devol, about five miles north of the Texas state line. During the stop, Trooper Green discovered a suspect had been cooking Methamphetamine. When he attempted to arrest the suspect, a struggle ensued and Trooper Green lost control of his weapon. The suspect shot and killed Trooper Green before fleeing the scene.

When the Highway Patrol was unable to make radio contact with Trooper Green, a Cotton County Sheriff's deputy went to investigate and found Trooper Green alongside a rural county road about a mile from U.S. 70. The suspect was apprehended two days after the murder and was eventually sentenced to death.

Trooper Green had served with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol for 6 years, and was assigned to Troop G. He is survived by his wife, three daughters, and a foster child.

It's been a long time since you were taken from all of us, some of the days have been hard and some not so bad, either way I miss you and your guidance. I personally want to Thank You for your years of Service over me as one of my Guardian Angels, it's truly appreciated. I also want to tell you how much I appreciate you looking over Gary as well. The day I got the call about him getting hit, all the memories of the day we lost you came back, I'm really not sure how I was going to handle losing both of you. Thank you again for moving him just enough so that he didn't take the full impact and was able to survive. Please be with him everyday during his recovery!! I love you Nik.
