Officer Lee Newbill was shot and killed in a planned attack on law enforcement.

The suspect fired into an emergency dispatch center inside the Latah County Courthouse intending to lure people into the line of fire. Officer Newbill was killed as he rushed to the courthouse to assist. A deputy helped pull the officer out of the way before being shot and wounded.

The suspect then fled to a nearby church where he murdered a citizen and later committed suicide as officers surrounded the church.

Officer Newbill served with the Moscow Police Department for 6 years. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and a son.

I love you every day, always. Think of you every day, forever.

Since you have been gone, I have been married. We have a beautiful son who shares your name as part of his. I struggle with the fact that your beautiful grandson will never know how amazing you are. Though am frequently reminded he will know because of the stories I will share with him. You can never be forgotten, for you live so strongly in my heart. I love you forever.

Your Daughter
