Officer Patrick Devaney was shot when he and Special Agent Kersey Gowin, of the North Dakota Attorney General's Office, were attempting to arrest two or more thieves. The officers were laying in wait in a field for the automobile tire thieves when they were shot.

Officer Devaney was killed instantly; Agent Gowin was taken to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his wounds early the next morning.

Five men were arrested, however, one confessed and was convicted. He served two years in prison before escaping and was considered at large.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
