Patrolman Jeff Buie was stabbed to death while confronting a man on a city bus. The suspect had been ordered to the back of the bus by the driver but cursed at the driver. Patrolman Buie, who was in plainclothes, then ordered the man off of the bus. The suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed Patrolman Buie three times. Patrolman Buie was able to shoot and wound the suspect but also wounded two passengers. Although wounded, he chased the suspect several blocks before collapsing. The suspect was arrested three days later after being wounded in a police shootout.

Patrolman Buie had been employed with the Tyler Police Department for 13 months and was the first officer from his agency killed in the line of duty.

He was survived by his wife.
