Officer Collings was shot and killed while working a uniformed off-duty security job at a local bank. He was in the process of arresting two robbery suspects when one of the suspects opened fire, fatally wounding him. One of the suspects was arrested shortly thereafter and the second suspect was arrested in Mexico in June 2000 after being wounded in a shootout with police. The suspect was extradited to Arizona after state prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty. In November 2002 the suspect was sentenced to life in prison.
Officer Collings had been with the agency for eight years and was survived by his mother and four sisters.

hello again brother. still, not one day goes by without me thinking of you. it shall be your birthday soon and i remember your 10th so vividly. you were at my and big garys' wedding. sadly he is also with you. actually, i should say joyfully, for i know you are both with our Father in heaven. Think not for one minute that you will as soon see my face for i would not for one minute , if possible be without you. life is a bitch and you are really heavy on my mind these days. perhaps that means something, i don't know. what i do know is that you are forever with me, you are my favorite brother(private joke) and always i carry you with me,not close to my heart, but you are my heart. Can't think more, my eyes can't see so well. But to you my tears are heard and you know how dearly i love you. kim
