Officer Dean was a member of a Street Level Interdiction team, which was serving the warrant at an apartment complex. Officer Dean used a battering device to knock down the door and as he and other officers entered the apartment, the lone suspect started firing a .357 magnum handgun at the officers. Officer Dean was struck one time between the side panels of his vest and the bullet lodged in his chest. A second officer received gunshot wounds to the leg. The shooter was shot and wounded by other officers. Officer Dean died about one hour later at the hospital.

I knew Ron from Bossier High School and he lived right down my street. I always felt safe with him living close by. I remember hearing the news and remembering what I was doing when I heard, kind of like when Elvis and John Lennon died. Rest in Peace, Ron. You will always be an ICON to me.
