Deputy Sheriff Kieran Grant was shot and killed while serving an eviction notice at an apartment in Hastings-on-Hudson.

The subject shot him three times at close range, knocking him to the ground. The man then stood over him and shot him three more times in the back as he tried to crawl down the hallway.

Because Deputy Kieran had planned to take the day off, he was unarmed at the time he went to serve the warrant and was unable to defend himself.

The 39-year-old subject was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. He died in prison on July 6, 2014, two weeks shy of his 6th parole hearing.

Deputy Grant had served with the Westchester County Sheriff's Department for 18 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Dear Mr. Grant, You may be surprised to hear this but not a day goes by that I don't think of you! Or prya for you! You were far too humble to realize the impact you had on my "little-girl" life! Your kindness to my Dad--even though he struggled so--was such an example of Jesus' kindness. You exemplified the words "Whatsover you do to the least of these, you do unto me." You couold only be the exemplary officer you were because you were an exemplary man first! And, I reaped the benefits of your example! I'm so grateful and blessed. And, that daughter of yours, in fact, your whole beautiful family has taken their pain and suffering and transformed it making it a crucible of love from which they receive the strength to help and care for others. SO, thank you dear Mr. Grant! Well done, good and faithful servant! Well done! Love, Audrey
