Officer Jeremiah Hurley was killed while investigating a call regarding a suspicious package in a residential neighborhood. During the investigation the package exploded, killing him and wounding the other officer on the scene.

The bomb had been attached to the bottom of a car and fell off in the driveway. The bomb builder was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, but that conviction was overturned and he was re-sentenced in 2007 to serve 37 years. In August of 2008 a federal appeals court reinstated the life sentence.

Officer Hurley had served with the agency for 23 years. He was survived by his wife, two daughters, two stepsons, and two grandchildren.
