Noah Daniel Studebaker

Lieutenant Studebaker succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained 8 years earlier as he and his partner investigated a burglary in progress. As the two officers approached the building a suspect inside opened fire with a shotgun, striking Lieutenant Studebaker in the face, neck, chest, arms, and legs.

Several of the pellets could not be removed and caused chronic pain and illness until finally causing his death.

Lieutenant Studebaker had served with the agency for 20 years. He was survived by his wife and daughter.
