Deputies Robbie Whitebird and Marvin Williams were shot and killed while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

Deputies Williams, Whitebird, and an officer from the Seminole Nation Lighthorse Police Department, were approaching the front door of the target location when they were fired on. Both deputies were struck by the gunfire.

After being wounded, Deputy Whitebird fell into the home. Other deputies entered the home and pulled him to safety, however he succumbed to his wounds at the scene. Deputy Williams succumbed to his wounds while being flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City.

The suspect surrendered a short time later after barricading himself in his home. On March 12, 2012, the subject pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and several other charges. He was subsequently sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Deputy Whitebird had served with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office for 15 months. He is survived by his brothers and fiance.

We still miss you little brother, every minute of every single day. I miss your friendship most of all and the way you and Freddy were always going at each other in fun. Our hearts are made heavy even more right now because a neighboring city lost a hero and he was even younger than you when you made your ultimate sacrifice. It never leaves my mind how we lost you and how we miss you but we know you are looking down on us and shining your light on us. You have a new partner now and his name is Justin Terney. Greet him and walk with him and show him that we will never forget him. Freddy and I talk often about the fun we used to have with you and Dee. We sure had some crew back then and we will again someday be back together. I look forward to that day my friend, my little brother, and my hero. I love you and I miss you Chase, you will never be forgotten.
