Chief Hare was shot and killed by an officer who had been suspended for reporting to work drunk. When the officer's supervisor attempted to discipline him he threatened to shoot the supervisor. When Chief Hare intervened he was shot by the officer. That officer was then shot and killed by another officer.
Chief Hare had been with the agency for 25 years and was survived by his wife and three children.
