Officer Kahre was shot and killed while following a shooting suspect. While on patrol Officer Kahre spotted the suspect and began to follow him as he requested backup to make a traffic stop. Before backup could arrive the suspect suddenly stopped and opened fire, striking Officer Kahre in the head. At the same time a second officer arrived and returned fire, striking the suspect five times, wounding him. The suspect was able to get back into his car and drive away. He crashed the vehicle a short time later and committed suicide.
Officer Kahre had been with the agency for fifteen years and was survived by his wife and two sons.
