Deputy Sheriff Chris Parsons was shot and killed from ambush after responding to a 911 call on Nugget Road, in Mineral Point, at approximately 2:10 am.

An ambulance had also responded to the location as a result of the 911 call regarding an unconscious woman. As the woman was loaded into the ambulance her son exited the mobile home fired a single shot with a shotgun, killing Deputy Parsons.

The subject fled into the nearby woods. He remained at large for approximately 15 hours until he turned himself in at a checkpoint setup near Mineral Point.

Deputy Parsons had served with the Washington County Sheriff's Office for only two months. He is survived by his fiancee, parents, and sibling.

Chris, it seems like yesterday we were in the academy together. Can't believe you're gone brother. You've taught me and a lot of other people a lot of good things. Please continue to keep myself and the rest of out class 11-84 safe and secure during our tour of duty. As always not a day goes by that I wish you were around. I salute you and you're selfless sacrifice, until we meet again brother.
