Randy Loy Davis

Sergeant Davis was shot and killed as he and other narcotics officers served a warrant in a hotel room. Sergeant Davis had obtained a key from the hotel manager in order to gain quick access to the room in order to keep the suspect from destroying evidence. As he began to open the door a single shot was fired from within the room and struck him in the chest. The suspect was arrested after a brief standoff.
Sergeant Davis had been with the agency for seven years and had been with two other agencies as well. He was survived by his wife and two children.

Cant believe its been thirty two years not since we got a SWAT call out due to a barricaded suspect that had shot Randy. Thankfully the suspect gave up prior to our deployment. Randy was my SWAT Sergeant weeks prior to transferring to the Narcotics Division and we all couldn't believe this had happened. After all these years I still think about him. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers along with the peace officers across our nation putting their lives on the line each day.
