Deputy Sheriff Leroy Brown was shot and killed by a man he had arrested several months earlier.

He was eating in the Dairy Burger restaurant in Bowie, Arizona, when the man saw him and entered the establishment. The subject ordered a hot cup of coffee and then approached Deputy Brown. He threw the coffee into Deputy Brown's face, and as Deputy Brown stood up, he shot him twice. The man then fled to a nearby school and committed suicide.

Deputy Brown was a U.S. Navy veteran of the Korean War. He was survived by his wife, two sons, parents, and four sisters.
