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.

Deputy Hopper,

I just watched you on tv. I remember the day it happened. I was in one of my college classes. I remember becoming so angry thinking that a human being could do that to another human being. You inspired me to join the academy sooner than expected. I was the youngest cadet to graduate my academy January 2013. I think of you very often on duty. Such a beautiful woman, and an amazing policewoman. I wish that I could have met you. RIP sister, you will never be forgotten.
