Lieutenant Denton was shot and killed with his own weapon while attempting to stop three suspects from stealing a car from his apartment complex's parking lot at 0300 hours. The suspects were able to overpower Lieutenant Denton and gain control of his .357 revolver and shoot him. One of the suspects was later shot and killed by police and the two other suspects were forced to join the military as part of their sentence.
Lieutenant Denton had been with the agency for 23 years and was survived by his brother and five sisters.
