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.

No words can express how much this hurts to loose someone like Deputy Suzanne Hopper. I had only two encounters with Deputy Hopper and on both occasions she was happy bright and was the most respectful person I have had the pleasure of knowing. Deputy Hopper was one of the deputies that I knew as a person who was always bright and happy and had the best attitude towards everything. She was a star deputy from what I know. She was never the person to want all kinds of fame and credit for anything. But her personality was one of the best. She was always one of the go-to people, when someone needed help or needed voluenteers for something she always had her hand up. She was truly and angel in disguise
