Hugh Everette Eubanks

Patrolman Eubanks was shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance. After making contact with two males he was told that there was not a problem and that no one at the residence called the police. As he marked back into service one of the suspects shot him in the chest three times with a 30-06 rifle. Because he was on the radio at the time the dispatcher heard the entire incident. The shooter was sentenced to life but was paroled in 1982, only seven years after Patrolman Eubanks' murder.
Patrolman Eubanks had been with the agency for 12 years and was survived by his wife

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 37th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the 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. It was a travesty of justice that your killer only served seven years before his release.

Rest In Peace.
