Deputy Conner was shot and killed when he and another deputy responded to a call involving a man with a gun. The deputies located the man in a rural part of Marengo County and ordered him to exit his vehicle. As Deputy Conner reached into his patrol car to get the shotgun the man opened fire with a .22 caliber pistol, fatally wounding Deputy Conner. The suspect was apprehended and sentenced to life in prison, where he died in 2001.
Deputy Conner had been with the agency for 11 and one half years.

He was a true servant of the people. After my grandfather died he kept a regular check on my grandmother while he went about his duties. He also helped me one day as I was coming from Demopolis in the spring of the year with a couple of bags of fertilizer on the back of my pick up. It started to rain and not wanting to get the fertilizer wet I had pulled over to try to cover it up.(in those days there was only one seat in a pickup and my mother was with me.) He stopped to see if I needed assistance and put the fertilizer in the deputy car and took it to my dad and moms house for me. He was always about helping people.
