Michael Page

Deputy Michael Page was shot and killed with his own service weapon during a struggle with a hit-and-run suspect.

Deputy Page had responded to a report of a car striking a utility pole. As he arrived on the scene he observed a man running into the nearby woods. A scuffle ensued in the woods and Deputy Page was struck over the head and then shot in the shoulder with his own weapon.

Paramedics and other deputies who responded to the scene located Deputy Page as he walked himself out of the woods. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds a short time later.

The suspect's body was found later in the day with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Page had served with the Bowie County Sheriff's Department for 3 years, and had previously served with the Texarkana Police Department for 5 years. He is survived by his wife, two children, parents, and three sisters.

We think all the time about our men and women in uniform and when they are killed doing their job we are sad and say , “ doing their job to many are being killed , we need to get out of this war “, because we can get out of this or that war . We thank them for thier service when we see them now . “ We didn’t used to “ . But we all seem to forget . We have men and women every day that go in harms way and we do not thank them for thier service . They too are in a war , but they can’t get out of this war. This war is a daily war that will go on forever . It is the war of good against evil. They are the only ones between you and I against criminals that are out to cause us harm . Thank you sir.
