Offender: Sentenced to life
Deputy Rick Daly was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop near the intersection of East Fayetteville and Walker roads. A fugitive squad in an unmarked car identified a teenage suspect wanted on armed robbery charges and called on Deputy Daly in his marked cruiser to execute the traffic stop around 3:00 pm.
As Deputy Daly approached the passenger side of the vehicle where the suspect was, the suspect exited the vehicle and fired multiple shots that struck him in locations not protected by his body armor. He was transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
The suspect fled the scene and remained at large for several hours before he was captured by a tactical team with the aid of a canine. On August 9, 2012, he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Deputy Daly had served in law enforcement for 25 years. He is survived by his wife, son, daughter, four grandchildren, and mother.
