Deputy Sheriff Suzanne Hopper was shot and killed after responding to a call of a window being shot out at a trailer park in Enon.

While conducting a preliminary investigation, Deputy Hopper observed a footprint and took out a camera to photograph it. As she was taking photographs, a male opened the door to his trailer and fired one shot at Deputy Hopper with a shotgun, killing her.

Additional deputies and officers from area police departments arrived at the scene and surrounded the trailer. A standoff ensued in which dozens of shots were fired between the suspect and officers. A police officer from the German Township Police Department was wounded and the suspect was ultimately killed during the shootout.

Deputy Hopper had served with the Clark County Sheriff's Office for 12 years. She is survived by her husband, two children, and two stepchildren.

Although I've attended multiple funerals for fellow brothers and sisters in blue, yours was particularly memorable. My husband joined me for his first experience attending an officers funeral. He was so moved by what he experienced that day, I know he has gained so much more appreciation for my career and those I serve with. I remember how peaceful the walk was, though cold, from where we parked and walked to your gravesite. The snow was so gentle that day....
You will never be forgotten.
